    Hi,

    I used to have chickens and love them dearly. Unfortunately I also fell in love with a man from Chicago. We recently moved from our condo to a house, but it is outside the city limits and in Burbank, IL. No chickens allowed. It really sucks because we have a big backyard and can't have chickens.

    I am really looking for other Burbankians to help me move to council to allow chickens.

    Beth

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    Oh, so sorry you aren't able to have chickens!!! You will be missing out on so much love. You might do a couple things here, stop by our Local Chicken Laws and How To Change Them section. Maybe there are others in your area working on this same thing...https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/37/local-chicken-laws-ordinances-and-how-to-change-them

    Same with your state thread. Maybe someone locally can help you get those laws changed....https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/37/illinois

    Good luck and I sure hope you can get those laws changed soon!!

    OOOH, should have stayed in Chicago, I understand you can have chickens there. If Chicago allows them - everywhere should. Welcome to Backyard Chickens.
