Hello everyone, I'm new here. So I don't have chickens right now (they're illegal ). I do have show pigeons though and a pair of rabbits (they're legal...haha). The officials where I live simply won't listen to my repeated letters and phone calls. I live in unincorporated Lafayette, California (94549); so the laws here are regulated by the county board of supervisors. They are very behind on legalizing chickens; as all the incorporated cities (including the one down my street) let you keep chickens. Do any of you have any hints or pointers on how to legalize chickens? Like I said earlier I wrote letters to the supervisors and even tried to call them, but they won't listen. I would greatly appreciate any ideas, as would all my neighbors. Practically every neighbor I have is in favor of legalizing chickens, as I've either talked to them or heard them express their interest in keeping a few hens. Even the neighbors who don't want chickens are open to having them legalized. We would all love to enjoy the ecological and sustainable benefits of chickens. Does anyone know what we should do with stubborn officials who don't take kindly to phone calls and letters? Thank you SO much. Here's the mean (I'm serious) official who is stubborn on legalizing chickens. She wrote a very nasty letter back to me (I was quite polite to her, though, and my neighbors and family assured me of this): Honorable Gayle B. Uilkema Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors Supervisor, District 2 I do NOT claim to own this photo. It is NOT mine. That's the county district I live in, which governs my everyday life...lol. I'm governed by zone R-6. Would really appreciate pointers. Thanks again!
