    Hi folks,
    I made a petition here: http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/lamesachickens/

    If
    you live in La Mesa, please sign it. If you know anyone who lives in La Mesa, CA, please send this to them and ask them to sign it.

    I also recently wrote up a blog post on a local community site about why we should allow chickens in our city. You can see that here: http://www.lamesatoday.com/profiles/blogs/chickens-in-la-mesa-do

    Since
    my last post on this forum, my family actually got chickens. I got an email from an acquaintance (who knows about my passion for chickens) that she knew someone who found 2 chickens in the street and the chickens needed a home urgently. So, even though it's still illegal, I went and picked up the chickens. They were sooooo wonderful. It was a naked neck and some other breed (I couldn't tell which) and they were about 4 mos old, both presumably pullets although I'm no expert on sexing chickens unless they lay eggs or crow. We had them in our yard for a few days before giving them to a foster home until we can legally have them back. So now I'm even *more* determined to legalize our chickens!

    Thanks for your help,
    Jill
