    I wondered how your battle was going??

    Boston, MAss id under similar debate. THe mayor however does support chickens in certain areas of Boston. But laws still need changing. There was a televised program, by PBS out of Boston that featured a discussion and included a animal control officer that voiced her opionion that chickens are not as loud as a barking dog. And the poo is less of a health hazard than dog poo.

    Perhaps it is online some where, televised in late winter early spring 2012:

    Emily Rooney was the newsperson
    Boston, Massachusetts
    Mayor of Boston
    Chickens

    I did a quick write up here on BYC with more details. Maybe a search will help.
