Feathers are in a Ruffle Over Backyard Chickens

The residents of Albany, NY have brought the backyard chicken issue to city council. The ordinance to allow backyard chickens has been amended and approved, but not without resistance. And, the back-and-forth on this issue is not yet over for Albany.

All Over Albany (a blogsite dedicated to the city of Albany, NY and it's residents) has the storey covered in the post: Pecking at the Albany backyard chicken issue

I don't agree with the opposition, but everyone is entitled to their opinion, and opinions are abundant on this issue. The reader's comments following the post on the backyard chicken issue are are interesting, heated, and sometimes quite harsh — it's definitely worth the read!

Definitely "Like". While I live nowhere near NY, I think it's great that city folk are trying their hands at urban farming and I believe that the cities should do everything to encourage this so long as it's beneficial. Keep pushing Albany chicken-lovers!
