If you live in a city/township/village that currently has an ordinance that prohibits you from keeping a few hens as pets, please check out CR-CLUC (Cedar Rapids Citizens for the Legalization of Urban Chickens) on facebook. Put CLUC in the search field and we'll pop right up.
We are in the beginning stages of forming a means by which to help folks change their community's laws to allow them to have a few chickens.
Congratulations to Fairfield, Iowa and Palo, Iowa. Both towns just passed Chicken-Friendly ordinances.
