    My group, CLUCKent (Citizens League for Urban Chickens Kent) has been working for the past year to revise our ordinance to allow 6 backyard hens. We have been to council several times and have another meeting on April 6. In anticipation of that meeting we are hosting a forum where residents can ask questions and get the real scoop on what the ordinance proposes.
