Change the law to allow up to 6 hens on a residential lot.  (no roosters allowed) 10.08.010 and 10.08.020

Many townships in the local area have adopted the modern trend of self sustainability and have already changed laws to allow backyard chickens.  Brookfield, North Riverside, Hinsdale, LaGrange, Countryside, Downers Grove, Naperville, Westmont, the City of Chicago, and many other suburbs allow chicken to be kept without issue.  

Chickens are wonderful animals that have many benefits.  Fresh eggs are the obvious benefit, but they also help cut down on weeds, bugs, mice, rats, and other pests.  They also help fertilize your lawn and make a great compost.  

If no more than 6 hens are allowed, the amount of noise and smell should be minimal.  Much less than most dogs produce.  Roosters are not allowed due to noise issues.
