Many Arizona cities allow chickens at single-family homes.

Glendale is considering allowing chickens in the city, and officials are reaching out for community input Wednesday.

This is the first meeting about a possible zoning change that could bring hens, not roosters, into single-family residential districts.

It’s a first step that would help Glendale’s planning division decide how the change would take place, including how many chickens would constitute a ‘reasonable number’ allowed.

City council has decided that any homeowners association rules would still apply if the ordinance is passed.

The meeting is Wednesday at 6 p.m. in City Council chambers at 5850 W. Glendale Avenue.
