EUGENE, Ore. (AP) -- Eugene residents who are keeping flocks of chickens in their backyards have a reprieve.

The city suspended its two-hen limit last week so the city council can review its farm animal ordinance.

The owner of the Eugene Backyard Farmer store, Bill Bezuk, told The Register-Guard most chicken-owning residents have more than two birds.
