    I just had to share, cause I thought it was so stupid. I recently decided I would raise chickens in my backyard.... well just found out in my city it's illegal to have a coop in the backyard but you can keep them in your house! stupid! Now I'm bummed out.

    Don't give up! A lot of towns have changed their ordinances because enough people petitioned their city councils. Do some research to support your cause. In my town, it was a young girl who started the ball rolling.

    Good luck!
