Lila, a Plymouth Rock chicken, left, and Lola, an Easter Egger, stand in front of their coop in Rock Island on Tuesday, September 20, 2016. Lindsay O’Brien has been one of the Rock Island residents at the forefront of the urban chicken movement. She has two hens herself and was told by the city she needed to get rid of them. After East Moline approved allowing urban chickens, Rock Island has progressed to the point where the city council is voting on the matter again.
