More clucking sounds are on the way to Spotsylvania.
The Board of Supervisors has voted to let people own two to six pet hens in more places, with a $35 permit. They do have to be kept in backyard coops a distance from other houses. Roostersare still banned. The county's issued eight permits for hens since last month and so far gotten no complaints.
