    YES! I would love to have a couple of laying hens in my yard. There is another thread, but it doesn't look overly active. I'd love to get a group together to discuss and plan the best way to get the ordinances relaxed! I work in downtown Denver, so Saturday morning or afternoon would work best for me. I'd like to hear from the other folks who have spoken to council members, how the conversations went, etc.

    Mama wants squawkers!

    The City Council has directed Staff to study changing the laws in Broomfield. My Ward 4 Council members and the Mayor Pro-Tem seem to be very much on board with making this happen. We need to get organized and make sure the Council members hear from everyone who is interested in keeping chickens and that we have great representation when it comes time for them to vote. Please send me a Private Message with your email address so you will get added to the group for notifications of happenings.

    I just heard from my Council member, Sam Taylor, the date of the Public Hearing is December 11th at 6 pm and it will be held in Council Chambers at One Descombes Drive. Now is the time to make sure all of your contacts know about the meeting. Sam says the Council is split on the issue which means Mayor Quinn would cast the deciding vote. We need to get as many people as possible to contact their Council members and the Mayor before the meeting and then to show up at the meeting on December 11th.

    You can get contact info for your Council members and the Mayor at this link - http://www.broomfield.org/council/ Near the bottom is a map you can use to figure out which Ward you are in, if need be.
