We are trying to get the ordinance changed in Keyport NJ. We've had chickens since April, and were under the impression that we were allowed to. We know at least 4 other families that have them in town, and were told by a council member that it was ok. Now, we have the Humane Society trying to take them away because a neighbor complained. This neighbor is known for complaining about things. He lives diagonally behind us. Our 2 immediate neighbors on either side, and the one directly behind us have no problem with them, and say they never hear them. Last night, a resolution was passed at the council meeting, keeping the Humane Society off our back until an ordinance can be brought up for a vote. My wife came up with an idea to make up lawn signs, and I thought we should make up some t-shirts for the kids to wear to the next meetings. I need some help coming up with effective, bullet-style lists for these topics, so they can be read and digested quickly. The first idea is: The benefits of having backyard chickens: Good pest control ... ... ... ... And the second idea: Some things that are louder than my backyard chickens: Dogs barking Motorcycles My neighbor's pool filter all summer ... ... Any ideas people can come with are appreciated!
