Uncle Sam Wants You to Keep Hens and Raise Chickens!

Posted in the Joliet Forum


Plainfield, IL

#1 Aug 8, 2012
Raising chickens is a sustainable, pro-active opportunity for us to take some power back over our food sources, and a few well cared for hens also happen to make great pets. Unfortunately, the City of Joliet considers even a small flock of 3 hens "farm animals" and won't allow them.

Other communities are getting on board with the backyard chicken issue, why shouldn't Joliet?

Please sign the petition to the city asking them to recognize a small flock of backyard hens as pets!
