What are your thoughts on backyard chickens? Do you feel that they pose a problem and a nuisance? Or are you an advocate that agrees there are many benefits for having your own flock?
I am pleased to read and see that there are movements all across the United States leaning towards a more sustainable country. Even something as simple as taking it to the board to change an ordinance. It is the small steps we take that string together one big change.
Like this couple in Kill Devil Hills, NC, they are calmly requesting a change to give them the choice to raise chickens. Just like the board facing the decision, we should take the time to learn and educate ourselves about simple homesteading task. If you are interested in having your own hens, learn your options. Pros and Cons of chickens. Can you have chickens according to the law? And quite simply, the eggs are so good!
