So I just confirmed with the town hall that we are not allowed to have chickens. We live in a small town in Western New York that prides itself in its rural roots, yet won't let anyone with less than 7 acres keep chickens. So, what is the first step I would take if I wanted to put up a fight and try to get the law changed? Should I write a proposal and take it to the town hall? If so, does anyone who has been through this before have an example? It would be nice to have a 'Change the Law' packet in this forum which someone could download as a starting point. It could have data on other favorable chicken laws, a list of benefits of keeping chickens, a petition statement form... just a thought. Any help would be appreciated.
