Howdy! I live in a small town in NH where backyard chicken keeping is allowed even though there's no specific ordinance. A lot of people treat their chickens VERY well with plenty of (or at least adequate) space and access to housing, BUT some do not. I've seen some chickens crammed in outdoor cages with NO access to housing and it gets COLD here. I've seen ducks with no access to water, not even a bucket to dunk their heads in! So...I'm starting a petition to have an ordinance passed that would require a certain amount of space and access to some type of housing. If your town includes space and housing requirements in its ordinance, please let me know! Any info. would be helpful! Thanks!
