I am starting the process to get the zoning ordinance changed in Bloomfield, WI. I have contacted the local and county zoning people on why we aren't setup for backyard chickens, and they say we are not zoned for it. This is a small town just north of the IL border with a little over 5,000 residence. I know a lot of people already have chickens around here, but my husband is a police officer and we don't want to break the law. I am planning on going to our local village meeting, and I am setting up a petition to be signed. If anyone out there has/had a similar situation, can you give me any advise or tips on how to get this ball rolling so we can have chickens.
