Okay, it seems many of you do not live in a free part of America. All these posts about chickens not being legal to own in ceratin cities/counties/communities/etc are bewildering. Why don't we as chicken owners, band together to get legislation passed that all governing regulations pertaining to poultry (or anything else for that matter), be honest and fair. If a community has an ordinance against free, tax-paying citizens owning their own chickens, said community cannot have restaurants selling poultry or poultry products. No more running down to the local grocery for a pack of leg quarters.....nope, your community is intolerant of poultry. No more running to the diner for scrambled eggs for breakfast. Sound feasible? Why not? These are the same yahoos that jump up and down pitching fits over "saving the whales" and animal rights, but don't have a clue where their food really comes from. I bet it would take less than a month for them to see the light if they had to give up all poultry products. They would welcome the local poultry grower into their neighborhood. And yes, I'm dead serious about this. I have always felt that if someone was going to push an agenda, they should see it through.
