BAY CITY (WKZO) -- Lori Grierson of Bay City wants to be able to keep her chickens, and the city appears to be listening.

Grierson has launched a Facebook page called "Bay City Chickens" to plead her case for keeping her two roosters and two hens, which she considers pets who helped her cope with her daughter's death.  MLive.com reports the Bay City Commission put off a vote last week on a proposed ordinance to ban livestock like Grierson's fowl and limit the number of cats and dogs in a home.

Grierson is now lobbying the commission to let her keep the birds.
