Food produced at home reduces energy use. reduces the cost of food to the producer, provides fresh and safe food, and reduces the demand for illegals aliens in the food industry. A reduction in the number if illegals reduces crime in your area!

I think it's a great idea and have been toying with getting a few
chickens to produce eggs. Here's the thing. If it's made legal,
you'll get a certain element of people raising chickens in filthy
conditions and you'll have unregulated slaughtering going on.
So while I agree with you, there are also drawbacks.

When people wake up and realize we ARE in the midst of Great Depression 2, they will have no choice but to go back to basics to survive.

Chickens eat mice and are easy to clean up after. Their manure is miniscule compared to dogs, cats and especially horses, yet there are more severe limits on chickens than for the others. It makes no sense.
We have 20 chickens with deep shavings in their attractive coop. We clean out the shavings every other month and there is never any odor.
It makes sense to allow people who want to keep them as pets to do so. It is not necessary to have a rooster to have eggs, so outlaw those if you want, but enough of the un-necessary city ordinances.
There are people who are as afraid of birds as some others are afraid of dogs, but we don't let the dog haters write restrictive ordinances affectng everybody else.
