Kristi Peterson started this petition to Nikki Fried and

I would like any and all families and individuals to be able to have a small flock chickens (hens only )in their yards. regardless of what city they reside in, in the state of Florida. Backyard flocks are becoming increasingly popular. The ability to have fresh eggs, bug control, added with the fact that are environmentally friendly makes it a very good choice. I moved to a small City and I was shocked that it was not allowed. Many cities even large ones are open to people having hens, and the health benefits that come along with the fresh eggs. I had moved from the large city of St Petersburg where it was legal to own a small flock to a much smaller area still in Florida. I think all cities should allow it with regulation of course. Chickens are cheap and easy to maintain, and small flocks do not pose a problem with smells or noise ordinance. With all that is going on in the economy and an emphasis on being healthy these days, having the ability to have fresh eggs is very important. Even low income families could easily maintain a small flock and be able to provide themselves and or their children with healthy protein. Please consider making this an option, for any Resident in the State of Florida regardless of the city they live in.
