New Kent County Board of Supervisors: Lift the ban on backyard chickens in residential areas

This petition had 1,695 supporters


Backyard chickens provide pest control without chemicals, healthy eggs, and enjoyment to the people who own them. New Kent County is a traditionally rural area with a shared heritage of animal husbandry, however not all of us can live on a farm, and some of us would like to have the freedom to raise a few backyard chickens. Understandably, we think there should be limits, on the number of chickens per household, and/or limitations on roosters, but we believe that the current outright ban goes too far. Sign up if you agree!
