Backyard hens, rabbits and goats may be allowed statewide

Backyard hens, rabbits and goats may be allowed statewide

Backyard chickens, goats, rabbits and other small livestock may become more common and less regulated in Ohio, if a bill introduced Wednesday becomes law. State Rep. Tom Brinkman, R-Cincinnati, and 20 co-sponsors are backing House Bill 175, which aims to sidestep local zoning laws that limit or prohibit keeping backyard chickens and other farm animals.
