    Hello my name is Rachel. I'm having a minor meltdown I live in Lafayette Indiana and animal control came to my house and told us we had 48 hours to get rid of my chickens , sadly we found new places for them to stay while we look for a place to live where we can have them back . Does any one know any thing we could do to help get the ordinance changed??? Thanks in advance for your help!!!

    [​IMG] It's not often that laws get changed to allow chickens. Even when it ends successfully, it takes a long time. If you could get a lot of chicken people in the area to sign a petition and speak at town hall meetings - you might get someone to listen.
