    Does anyone have any suggestions of tactics to use when trying to get city animal ordinances changed? Group rallies? Petitions? City Council speaches? Houston Texas' chicken restrictions are unmeetable for the small, private chicken raiser and these laws need to be changed. I would appreciate any tips or advice.[​IMG]

    Read our lehigh Acres thread on here. We took the poor economy approach as suggestd by the news stations and oh's taken off!
    The newspaper also put our story up on the online version and has a vote button for or against.....we are doing well on that too.
    If you can look up your local city gov website like I did ...I found a section that lists code violations for the month. That might give you a good starting point to bring to the attention of local news stations etc. Then advertise any online polls on craigs list in the farm and garden section.

    Alas, life would be much simpler if we could just kill and eat the city council or HOA board members![​IMG] THAT would make them think twice about messing with chicken folk.[​IMG]
