SYKESVILLE, Md. (AP) — The Sykesville Town Council has approved a code amendment that will allow accredited educational institutions to raise chickens.

The amendment was approved Monday by a 4-3 vote.

The amendment says a school’s chicken pen must be at least 50 feet from a home’s property line. The chickens must be registered with the state Department of Agriculture and each school is limited to six chickens.

The Ava Wanas Montessori School has expressed an interest in raising chickens.
