Chickens in Medford!

80 Signatures Goal: 100

We, citizens of Medford, Mass, support amending the existing zoning ordinance to allow up to 6 pet hens (no roosters) for personal use as pets and egg production.

Sponsor

In the last few years, as the Green living, Eat Local, sustainable living, organic, recycle, etc movement has gained popularity, cities and towns all over America have been relaxing their chicken laws to allow 4-6 carefully tended, PET backyard hens for eggs. We\'re talking about hens only, no roosters (no noise!) kept in a pretty, carefully-maintained enclosed coop; raised by hand as pets and for eggs. Please help us make this happen.

    This is a great step to help keep our community healthy. Producing food for yourself should be a right

    My young son learned how to take care of chickens at a summer camp a couple of years ago and wanted a pet "fluffy" chicken as a result. When told that we could not have one he didn't understand why. I couldn't explain the "why" since I didn't understand the reasoning either. Makes no sense to me.
