    Hi

    I am part of a coalition of DC citizens fighting to keep backyard chicken ownership in DC legal.

    Please see the Wash Post story linked below.

    Hello and Welcome to BYC.


    The article quotes Salmonella and Mice as the reason for the ban - outbreaks of infection are linked to commercial poultry and mice live anywhere there's access to food.
    Sounds like someone in power has a prejudice against pet chickens [​IMG].

    Here's hoping you can fight the ban and continue to have backyard chickens.

    I am also fighting to keep DC from slipping in a law that would take away our wonderful chickens. Someone suggested getting on the local DC thread. How do I find that?

    If you are a DC resident reading this, please sign our petition at the link below. Or, if you are a not a resident, put in a comment saying how great chickens have been for your community. We have only about two weeks to try to stop this ambush by some bureaucrats on our chickens..
