I'm taking a backyard chicken class!

It should be fun!

I'm also working to change the town bylaws to allow for small numbers of hens on residential propertys.  The zoning bylaws are very hard to change - 2/3 majority, so we'll see what happens!  I'm puting together a proposal that includes limits on the # of chickens, no roosters, property line setbacks, cleanliness requirements.  Whatever I can do to prevent chickens from being a nuisance, so that hopefully the zoning ordinance will be possible to change.  Anyone have any experience in this?  I'd appreciate all advice and comments!
