"Its extremely popular in the past we would be able to order baby chicks on a weekly basis, now we're at the mercy of the hatchery and what they have to send us," said Chris Olow, of Hacienda Hay and Feed.

i'm an animal lover who lives in marina, but there are big problems that come with having chickens in town.
since my neighbor got his chickens i have raccoons, skunks, and possums passing through my backyard regularly. like i said, i love animals and find this fascinating, but these wild critters carry diseases that we don't want to subject our pets and kids to- not just rabies, etc. if bitten, but the droppings of wild animals can carry a multitude of diseases.(not to mention my dog getting skunked in our own backyard recently!)
also, you won't be able to stop people from letting eggs hatch- who is going to be able to regulate this law? there will be more than 4 hens per household- there will be roosters crowing and eventually sold off to cock-fighting rings, and there will be chickens being butchered in backyards for dinner.
please think this through! like i said, my neighbor already has chickens and i am attesting to the problems this brings!
thank you.
