A City of Yreka Chickens in the Backyard, Measure M ballot question is on the June 5, 2012 ballot for voters in the City of Yreka in Siskiyou County.

If Measure M is approved by the city's voters, the keeping of backyard chickens will henceforward be allowed.

Right now, only those property owners with 5 acre parcels or greater are allowed to have chickens within the city limits, subject to a use permit.
