Well, my big night in the spotlight was last night. I took it to the board to change our ordinance to allow us to have a small flock of backyard chickens. I went well prepared with answers to all the negative thoughts on chicken keeping and it went over fairly well! BUT here was the issue brought up (you know there always has to be one! UGG) ....... How does a small town (pop. apx 2000) enforce the ordinance and who is responsible for that? I could really use some ideas on this issue to show the board. I did suggest a permit fee to keep "joe-shmo" from picking up chickens at the feed store on a whim and not taking care of them, but apparently that wasn't enough in their eyes. Any info I could present to the board would be much appreciated! Thanks!
