    Hello all! My Name is David Thompson and I am one of 500 properties out of 14,000 or so that can legally have a chicken coop. We are working with three other neighbors to manage the finances and responsibilities. We recently spoke at our council in town during the infamous "chicken coop ordinance" discussions. We lost full support but there are still 500 that can have them!
