Make it legal for raising chickens in the Brooklyn Park area. I've always wanted one as a pet, but chickens are illegal to be raised in Brooklyn Park. I love being with chickens. Every time I go to my relative's house in Minnesapolis, I always spend time with their chickens. I can spend the whole day with chickens if I could. They're basically just like an ordinary pet such as a dog or a cat. I think that if you are able chickens in Maple Grove, Anoka, and Osseo, you should be able to raise chickens in Brooklyn Park. Even Coon Rapids just recently allowed backyard chickens to be raised. There are positives with raising backyard chickens. You get fresh eggs, chicken poop is a rich fertilizer for your gardern, they're a natural weed or bug exterminator, and chickens can help with stress. There aren't any predators that would come after a chicken, besides a cat, in Brooklyn Park. Chickens may leave a strong smell, but it's not that bad after you get used to it. They're not that high maintenance to take care of.
