Wish Me Luck

In my ongoing quest to bring my chickens home, I am speaking to half of our city council members Thursday. I will be speaking to the full city council on September 2.

I will be explaining how ecologically smart owning chickens can be.

I will tell them how much it helps financially to have this versatile, cheap, healthy protein source available.

I will show them pictures of my children enjoying their pet chickens.

I will explain how allowing chickens will bring them into line with all the other cities in our area.

I will try not to blabber.

I will try not to appear like the "crazy chicken lady."

Mostly I will try not to faint.

Wish me luck.

I would be so upset to have to get rid of my chickens. I totally understand why you have been upset. I hope you fight city council and win. Glad you've got your speech lined out. Remember to have answers to any questions they might have also. Good Luck!

Nancy, it went really well. They were very nice and very receptive. I have my fingers crossed but I think it is going to happen!!
