You can voice your opinion about backyard chickens in Peachtree Corners at an upcoming meeting.

Got something to cluck about your ability to keep your own brood? In a fowl mood about your neighbor’s pets? You can voice your opinion about backyard chickens in Peachtree Corners at an upcoming city council meeting.

A public comment period will be conducted at the October meeting of the Peachtree Corners City Council on Oct. 17. The council will hear residents’ opinions about the current regulations on keeping chickens and other livestock for personal use.

The city’s current policy is that chickens can be kept on private residential property if it is three acres or larger. City Manager Brian Johnson also discussed the policy at an August meeting of the United Peachtree Corners Civic Association. 

There is no agenda item proposed to change the current policy on backyard chickens. Many residents have said they want to “make a case” for or against the current chicken policy, Johnson said. The hour-long comment period will give the public “the opportunity to get on the record on whether we should do something [different] or not,” Johnson said.

The Oct. 17 meeting begins at 7 p.m. in the City Council Chambers, located at 147 Technology Pkwy., Suite 200.
