OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) -- Olympia residents would be able to raise chickens, ducks, rabbits, and even a couple of small goats in their backyards under an urban farming measure the city council is considering Tuesday night.

Mayor Stephen Buxbaum says it's a fun way to grow your own food.

The Olympian reports (http://bit.ly/ZCGE5A) urban farmers would be able to sell food from their homes.
