Lower Township tells girl to ditch her 4-H chickens I havent told my daughter yet. Were trying to teach her about agriculture, but were going to have to withdraw her from 4-H because shell have no chickens to show, Lyman said. That moment arrived a few hours later with a big, yellow school bus. Brianna, a member of the Milky Way 4-H Club, was told the news. When I heard I had to get rid of them, I was in shock mode, Brianna said. I didnt know what to do. I didnt want to get rid of them because I raised them as little chicks. Every day, I got home from school and held them. I didnt want to get rid of them ever. I feel so bad for this girl. I hope their movement takes off and others come forward and push to change the ordinance. Children should be encouraged to take on responsibilities like raising and caring for animals. Self-sustainability should not be discouraged.
