Hi everyone! I have learned so much about chickens from this website and this forum, and as much as we would love to have our own piece of land, we just can't as of yet. We have plans to in the next few years, but until then, we are doing as much sustainability and urban homesteading as we can in our own backyard. Our city allows chickens, but our HOA does not. I know this is a battle, but I am determined to educate my community and share the beauty of a whole foods and sustainable lifestyle.
I wrote up a petition and found a cute pamphlet on backyard chickens that I will hand out when I go door to door. What do you guys think? I already have a meeting set up with the HOA directors for next month's meeting for me to address my petition. The sad thing is, our HOA is made up of volunteer presidents and such who just take over when the other person is tired of doing it, and no one comes to the meetings. Usually the president is a stubborn power-tripper who likes to enforce rules. I am hoping to appeal to the neighbors first, then have supporters addressing petition at the HOA meeting.
Can you check it out for me and let me know what you think? Thanks so much! Anything else I should do or add would be great!
Here is the pamphlet:
