But, it could be practically anywhere.
Tom and Julie Weber love keeping chickens at their house.
They say they’re great pets, they provide eggs and their daughter, Wren, loves playing with them.
But on Feb. 11, an animal control officer warned the Webers they were violating a city ordinance that forbids chickens at residences. The officer gave them 72 hours to part ways with the plucky poultry.
The Webers are pushing back.
This week, Julie Weber took their fight to City Hall, armed with a 100-name petition supporting them.
“It’s a bit archaic that you can’t keep chickens,” she said Wednesday. “Now, as we are moving toward understanding locally grown food, it’s an important piece of that.”
Next month my city will be considering an ordinance which would allow up to six chickens (no rooster). I honestly don’t know what to think about it.
Any thoughts anyone?
