    Good Luck!

    My Aunt lives in Caledonia... she is out in the middle of tons of farmland though? I would have thought chickens were a non-issue there. I guess there are more residential areas of Caledonia ?

    The city folks moved to the country to get away from the city and in return they enacted laws to prevent us from doing the simple things that brought them here in the first place.

    Changing a little verbiage in an ordinance is a lot more work than I ever anticipated.

    I may just do that - Caledonia is more rural than Eagan, MN , I just can't believe after all the resources we gave them they still nixed it.

    Sometimes, it is just about counting votes. Sorry to hear yours went the way it did.

    Gah. I'm sorry it didn't work out. Was there community opposition or was it just the board members? Will you try again?
