    Hello!

    We are attempting to bring backyard chickens to our city. Our group has done months of work with our city. The city is now requesting more information from cities (similar to ours) that have allowed backyard chickens. Do you happen to know any high-income, rather “posh” cities that have allowed backyard chickens? I would like to contact those cities personally to ask questions. We know of Bexley, OH, Ann Arbor, MI, and Lakewood, OH. If you happen to know of any more cities, woudl you please share?

    Thank you very much!

    I don't know about posh, but San Francisco and Seattle both allow backyard chickens in the city prope and are pretty high income. Most of their surrounding suburbs allow hens up to a certain number as well.
