Fitchburg chicken proposal for the birds

I was reading in the public notices of the newspaper about a public hearing on April 2 at Memorial Middle School hosted by Councilor Dolores Thibault-Munoz regarding a petition to raise chickens in back yards of properties 5 acres or less in Fitchburg. Really? What? Did I read that right?

With so many issues and problems to be resolved in the city of Fitchburg, Councilor Munoz should be trying to resolve some of them with other petitions that will help improved the quality of lives of the taxpayers of this city.

I guess she is just thinking like a real politician of "a chicken in every pot."

Okay education time. The chickens are raised as pets and they are called "silkies".

There are many residents raising them now even in the heavily populated and homes that are close to each other in the downtown area.

Most residents in developments even with small plots of backyard space now have "silkies.

They come in black or white. They are now the new pet to have as their feathers feel like silk.

Silkie Bantams remain small and make great house pets. They are now also the new "Yuppie" pet for the middle to upper class of people.

The Tractor Supply store in Lancaster near Walmart sells them but you will usually have to buy 6 at once, which may be too much if you already have 30 of them.

Easter is the biggest time of the year to buy them so they run out fast as they are given as gifts to the kids.

To you it may not seem a problem but remember Fitchburg actually comprises of 75% rural areas and developments. Some of these people are complaining about their neighbors having "silkies" next dooor.

Just because you don't see it in your downtown area doesn't mean it is not an issue. Come out to the rural areas such as Ashburnham Hill Rd., Fischer Rd., Williams Rd. Those people don't know what not having streetlights is like because they only had one every mile!

Do you realize that 75% of the population also resides in the rural areas and not downtown?

I agree that it is an issue that needs to be decided but we also have MANY major issues within the city that these councilors do not even discuss.
Uh huh
