    Hey guys if you could go sign the petition mentioned in the article it would be a GREAT help! This family is close to where I live and it is just a matter of time till someone else has a problem. Please help us make a stand in NJ for chicken ownership.

    I think they took the article down. Unless it's just me, but it says page could not be found.

    Good luck today! According to the "unscientific" poll that accompanies the article, 93% support you.[​IMG]

    Let us know what happens...

    I went to the meeting today and they said they were unable to discuss the matter due to the impending court case. They did allow me to speak. I presented them with more documentation supporting backyard chickens and the 122 signature petition. I will update next week after I go to court.

    In September I received a violation notice because the keeping of poultry is prohibited here. I presented my case to the board of health and in January they denied my request to have the ordinance changed. I was given 45 days to get rid of the chickens. After the 45 days expired I received a summons to apeear in court because I have not removed the chickens. I will not remove them until I have exhausted all of my options.
