    I wanted to change the ordinance in Lemont, IL to allow for backyard chickens. Has anyone worked on this change in the past. I know in unincorporated Lemont it's okay but not in Lemont proper.

    I persevered and got an ordinance change in my city.
    Several members of our local chicken group and I have worked on this in several area cities. We failed in two, succeeded in four, successfully expanded the number allowed in one and prevented reduction of numbers allowed in another.
    What have you done so far?
    Have you or any of your neighbors came afowl of the law yet?
