CLOVIS, N.M. (KRQE) – A Clovis woman can keep her chickens, at least for a while.
Mary-Beth Bouchard met with city officials to come up with a compromise after the city said her beloved pets of 13 years didn’t meet zoning qualifications. She was even cited despite the fact she owned them for more than a decade.
The city now says they’ve come up with a list of rules she must follow.
Bouchard cannot add any more chickens. If a chicken dies, it cannot be replaced. The rules also say that if the city receives a complaint Bouchard must get rid of her pets.
The compromise still needs to be approved by the city commission.
