Letter to the editor - Backyard chickens

-A A +A

Backyard chicken eggs are the best. Too bad our city council is too closed minded as to allow people to have a few chickens in their yard. The ordinance they adapted was hastily done, politically motivated, drafted without any consideration of responsible pet owners, as they refused to let us in on the "debate" while at the same time allowing the HSUS to draft the ordinance.  
HSUS is against any form of animal ownership. So, not only were they biased in drafting the ordinance, they do not, will not, cannot, and have refused to fairly and consistently enforce the ordinance by picking and choosing who they apply it to, simply continuing with their biased, unbending approach. It is an unfair and unrealistic assault on our freedoms to be self sufficient.  
What's next, gardens?
