Bring back the chickens

Got eggs? Back in March, with little fanfare and public input, changes to sections of the city’s zoning code were made. In the process, a long-standing provision allowing homeowners to keep up to three egg-laying backyard hens was removed.

I encourage all budget-conscious, health conscious, nature-loving and back-to-the-land advocating Lodians to contact our city council and encourage them to reinstate this provision. Even our city attorney has his little flock. Shouldn’t the rest of us, if we are so inclined, have the freedom to do so?

    Then you have obviously not had a backyard free range chicken egg. The difference is striking.
