For more information about the chicken movement in Madison, check out http://www.madcitychickens.com/
Here are a few really dumb reasons that people are trying to oppose the Cedar Rapids chicken movement.
Hatred towards Happiness
I can't do anything about that last one, but avian flu doesn't hit small flocks (certainly not a flock of three), no one in their right mind would try to keep a rooster in town and they are the noisy ones, and a chicken can't make more of a smell than a dog. Which brings me to the next thing on my list. If I can't have three chickens in my yard as pets, then I also shouldn't be able to have three large, barking, pooping, maniac dogs as pets. Hmmm.....
I don't think the complainers will show up to complain out loud. They just make anonymous comments here and there on The Gazette website. Chickens.

Anyway, 11 years of chemical free lawn has its disadvantages. Last years creeping charlie put the world out to its out of town relatives that our place is very friendly and they've all immigrated. Seriously. I wish it was edible.
OK, I'm headed back out to pull some more weeds.
