    I live on an island inside a string of barrier islands off the coast of North Carolina. To those that have ventured here, you would probably not think chickens would really fit the environment. On the contrary :) Im glad to see that more locals are getting interested in raising their own poultry. Here is a local artice. It isnt long, but it gives a glimpse as to what we have to go through to have our birds.

    Well, at least the city fathers seem to have an open mind. Keep us informed.

    Hello Manteo! Looks like the publicity for KDH is off to a good start! That article seems pretty positive, and started right off with calling the perceived negatives myths.

    I'm in Arlington VA, where we are going through the same thing. I'm involved with a group called The Arlington Egg Project- they are working to have the ordinances changed to allow a limited number of backyard hens (but no roosters) also.

    Our local community paper has run a number of supportive and informative articles in the past year or so, but this week they are saying the "counter-offensive has begun":

    It's a long fight for us. Good luck, KDH! Hope all goes well and you get your chickens soon.
