   A metro-east village is considering an ordinance that would allow residents to raise poultry.

   The Alton Telegraph reports that Godfrey trustees early next month will consider an ordinance related to raising chickens on property zoned as residential. The Godfrey measure is patterned at least partly after one in nearby Alton.

   Godfrey resident Kenny Feazel is hungry for the change. Unaware they were illegal, he's been raising chickens since April to have fresh, organic eggs because his wife is too sensitive to store-bought ones. The couple also raises their eight chickens to produce fertilizer for their organic garden.

   A Feazel neighbor complained about the birds, prompting Grafton officials to take a look at the issue.

   Godfrey lies along the Mississippi River in Madison County, north of St. Louis.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon has signed legislation that would expand the definition of eggs.

The measure approved on Friday defines eggs edible for human consumption as those produced by chickens, turkeys, ducks, geese and guinea fowl. Current law only included chicken eggs in its definition.

Nixon says the expanded definition will allow the state Department of Agriculture to inspect the additional types of eggs and make sure they are kept clean and at proper temperatures.

The bill was sponsored by Republican Sen. Dan Brown, of Rolla.
