The urban chicken concept will get a hearing before the Keizer City Council after the Planning Commission recommended allowing up to three hens Wednesday night.

No roosters would be allowed, and the commission’s recommendation includes requiring prospective owners get a free, one-time permit. The commission also recommended a three-year sunset clause, requiring a coop and a 10-foot setback from adjacent properties.

More later.
