    I saw this local news segment about a family and their chickens: http://www.wilx.com/news/headlines/Family-Fights-To-Save-Chickens-217047701.html

    I hope I find out if the family gets to keep their eight hens (they are in my state but not in my town).

    I can't figure out why any politician would want to be associated with taking away anything beneficial to a special needs kids.
    The report mentioned that the town ordinance already allows bantam chickens, so granting one exception for eight full sized hens hardly seems unreasonable.
