    I have heard ruhmors around the coffe shop that an old grouch wants to try and repeal the chicken ordinance.

    Do you think that a small country town of less than 1000 people will pass that?

    We have at least 20 or so flocks in town.

    and it is a large income for some of the Mexicans (not being racist my best friends are mexican) who have upwords of 40 per flock.


    the nerve of some people huh i cant believe this and will not stand for it!!

    So, 1000 people probably means about 250 households. 20 flocks is approximately 8% of the households. That's actually quite a lot. Also consider the number of additional households who get their eggs from those who keep a flock. Chances are pretty good that unless there have been some significant changes in the demographics of the population that it won't fly.

    Now if you have new upscale housing developments and people moving in from elsewhere, that could change things.

    Maybe you can push to have everyone with a flock to give a few chicks to their flockless neighbors?
