Kearney won't allow chickens within the central Nebraska city.

The city council voted Tuesday night to reject a measure that would have allowed residents to own chickens.

Council members said they were worried that if chickens were allowed, then people would want to bring other farm animals into the city.

Kearney city council member Bob Lammers says he doesn't think chickens or other farm animals like pigs and cattle are appropriate in town.

Only one council member voted for allowing chickens.
