I really hope this doesnt pass.
Even a few years ago, here in the city we had neighbors with chickens and roosters that ran around with no cage no nothing and the cops said they couldnt do anything about it.
Which makes me wonder why this even being discussed...
I hope this doesnt result into more and more animals being allowed leading to diseases and outbreaks a like.
I also hope they really set the boundries and what the rules are for those who live next door to those with chickens.
Because its clearly a myth...roosters never shut up.

It is unfortunate that the experience you had with chickens in the past was such a negative one. Your neighbors were clearly irresponsible and inconsiderate. I do not blame you for not wanting a repeat of that occurrence.
Diseases are a result of overcrowding and neglect. I can assure you that, when properly cared for, backyard hens and their eggs are far safer and fresher than what you will find in the store.
Furthermore, feral cats that have not been vaccinated along with stray dogs, raccoons and possums are far more likely to spread sickness and disease.
You are correct about roosters. They make a lot of noise. This is why I did not and would not ask for them to be permitted.
Do It Right,
If being a United States Marine, who served her country honorably in electronic intelligence, keeping you and yours safe, earning a Bachelorís degree from Appalachian State University in 3 years and educating herself in sustainable living makes me a hillbilly then...Thank you. I accept your compliment with pride.

Your disdain for Lincolnton is obvious. That makes me think one of two things: 1) Youíre moving or 2) You are going to use that passion to make Lincolnton the kind of place you think it should be.
