Sunnyside planning commission recommends against allowing chickens as pets

SUNNYSIDE, Wash. -- It's a strike against allowing chickens as pets in Sunnyside. The planning commission there recommends city leaders don't allow it.

The concern is enforcement if people don't keep the chickens locked up. And, what to do if chickens get loose. There's no place to house them.

The recommendation will be brought to city council at the end of next month.
