    I was wondering if there is any way to get our town chicken laws changed and how to do it. Where i live (marion, va) no chickens are currently allowed within town limits.

    Welcome to BYC![​IMG] I'm glad you joined our community.

    Definitely take a look at the link that Yorkshire Coop left you with. You may also want to post in your state thread to see if anybody nearby has ideas on how to change the ordinance: Virginia

    Good luck, and I hope you can keep chickens eventually!

    It would be good to rally other chicken folks to back you up. Go to "where am I, where are you," in the Social forum to locate and post on your state thread. You may get unexpected support from others who have changed laws in their area. Good luck to you. Tell them Chicago allows chickens in the CITY, if they can, anyone can.
