Hi everybody! This is my first post in BYC. I am a resident in Sierra Vista, AZ. Currently chickens are not allowed here. I have put a lot of time and effort into this. I've researched other city's ordinances and wrote up a full proposal. I have gone to our city council and they responded positively. They asked for a show of support, so I've started petitions and the ball is officially rolling for this to change. However, the council also asked for information on how allowing chickens (I asked for "poultry" specifically because I want ducks too) has effected other cities. We have quite a bit put together already, but I really want to make this something they cannot shut down. So I ask: do any of you know of a city that has changed in the last few years? I know many cities allow it but I need one that can give a statement on the effect the change has had. Any ideas you offer I can contact them and do all the leg work, I just need leads?! Any other legitimate resources or information on the benefits of keeping chickens in a city? Thank you in advance!
