If you hear a cluck next door in the near future, here's why. The city is making it easier to raise your own chickens in Tampa.
City council members voted 4-2 to rewrite the city's land-development code, laying out rules for keeping chickens within city limits.
The changes call for a ban on roosters and will require homeowners to have a coop for chickens. It'll take the rest of this year to implement the changes.
Until then, you're technically not allowed to have chickens in Tampa within 200 feet of your neighbors, and most city lots don't accommodate that.
