Chickens provide multiple benefits such as fresh daily organic eggs which are healthy and nourishing, provide income to some for the sale of those eggs at local farmers markets, connect the surrounding community by providing a fresh alternative to store bought eggs, and they support local businesses such as the feed store, nurseries (purchasing of hay), and custom chicken coop designers and suppliers.

      As stated in my current petition for Eagan, MN, the only reasons chickens are banned is because of inaccurate assumptions related to commercial hatcheries or chicken farms. These issues simply do not apply in a residential backyard setting. Hens are quiet, gentle and funny little creatures that do far more good than other legal domestic pets in that they have a huge organic environmental/bio-recycle benefit--thus having a positive impact on landfills and lessening waste overall. Please be pro-environment and allow Delaware residents to have their backyard chickens.

      People living in the city should not be restricted to having a dog or cat. An animal that provides food such as eggs should be allowed with restrictions. The owner will need a license but a city dweller should not be forced to buy eggs from a farm when they can have a few in thier yard not to mention a fun pet that they can feed and care for.

      Chickens are good, all around fun birds. They deserve respect and appreciation, and with more urban chickens, the less birds there will be being tortured on factory farms.

      Chickens in our yards are a good choice for even more reasons than listed here. Http://Spring-Hill-Heritage-Poultry-Conservatory.com
