By  | 

BEDFORD, Va. (WDBJ7) Raising chickens is not allowed in the town of Bedford, but work is underway to change the rules.

The Town of Bedford Planning Commission voted Thursday night to recommend updating the town's zoning ordinance. If approved the measure would allow people to raise up to six chickens with a free permit.

Town council will consider making the change after getting public feedback.
