    Hi all,
    This is my first post so forgive me if anything is repetitive. I just wanted to share some new legislation in the works in Wyoming, especially Natrona County. There has been a city ordinance for years allowing only 2 hens in residential back yards for 4H projects, pest control or egg producers. Recently a proposal was made to change that to 10 so that small egg businesses could become profitable. We of course are in favor of the change since we have one hen, 2 chicks, and 2 ducks roaming our back yard. (So far the neighbors have no problems with it.) You may want to check out the new legislation, it could be helpful to you in your battles.
