    Aparently,
    San Diego Union Tribune posted an editorial that shed our backyard flocks in a bad light.
    I missed that paper but this morning I see the aftermath of that bad editorial.

    ONE IS FROM ONE OF OUR BYC FAMILY!!!

    I Quote from B. Anderson, of Riverside County...
    " As a member of Backyardchickens.com, I must respond. A few hens are much quieter than the pack of mini-mutts my neighbor has.
    Hens can be confined to a covered pen so no other animals can get to them.
    They are easyily cleande up after. There is no valid reason for a city to not allow residents to have a few chickens. "

    In all there were seven other letters saying basically the same things as well as how wrong the Tribune is for allowing such a bad editorial to be published and how much everyone likes their chickens etc....

    B. Anderson..... THANK YOU FOR WRITING TO THE PAPER! [​IMG]
