City Councilman Stephen Kunselman told his colleagues during the weekend there is support among residents who like the idea of having access to "farm fresh" eggs, which some foodies consider to be tastier and healthier than the store-bought variety.
"You can live in New York City and have chickens,'' Kunselman told his colleagues. "It's not a matter of how urban you are. It's a matter of political will.'"
The Ann Arbor News said some of Kunselman's colleagues questioned the idea. One quipped that he liked fresh milk and should be allowed to graze a cow in his backyard.
Kunselman was undeterred and said he would bring a formal resolution to the council sometime in the near future.
