Lowell is not farm land. It's a city.
Next they will allow pigs. Oh wait we already have them. On Appleton St.

Yes you are correct. But that's only in a 4 room apartment.

The rich people who live in a 5 or 6 room apartment raise Turkeys.

I believe that the question is whether or not to allow people to raise chickens in their yards.

Each potential chicken owner should request that their land in Lowell be zoned Farm Land then they could raise whatever they wanted and be subject to inspections to insure livestock and poultry standards are being met. Until they receive the zoning change only what is considered family pets should be allowed.

People like you who know which ones to inspect and you pay them to do it too! Be careful you name may show up on the front page.

I once called a call girl. She gave me the address
I went it and she said 400dollars in advance,
So I gave her 400 dollars.
When I left she shook my hand and I could feel paper . Thinking it was her phone #.
But when I got into the car, It was 800 dollars.
And a note that said please please come over anytime. It will always be free.
For the first time I feel like a real woman.
LMAO.
