Lombard Rejects Backyard Chickens

This is what's wrong in the world. Can you imagine living in a place where you can't raise hens? Read this article so you'll know NOT to move to Lombard, a suburb of Chicago. OK, so you weren't planning to move there anyway, but chicken lovers and sustainable-livers of the world need to unite in support of folks ability to live a more sustainable lifestyle.

So many misconceptions exist in the minds of elected officials and other uninformed citizens who apparently won't even give chickens a trial run. C'mon Lombard City Council! Hens are neither loud nor smelly. Many neighbors, after exposure to next-door chickens are delightfully surprised. One neighbor who strolled past my house today commented on how nice it was to see my chickens out in my front yard. The world can change, one neighboorhood at a time. Here's to CLUC and all other groups striving to promote more sustainable living conditions.

Please take a moment to read the article linked to the title of this post and register your opinion.
