This is the kind of issue that the commissioners have no right or basis for getting ivolved in. I live in Northumberland County, in Dalmatia , and I keep a small flock of chickens. It sounds to me that they are using a sledge hammer to kill an ant. By that I mean, if the person is a reasonable and responsible pet owner and even the neighbors don't have a problem with the pet chickens, let them be kept. Or have a town meeting or ballot initiative. Don't just make a pronouncement that all chickens or domesticated farm animals are outlawed. In this country at this time our "leaders" must educate themselves with the ecological reality that allowing native plants to grow, lawns to diversify into habitat, laundry to be hung out on lines to dry, and people keeping chickens and planting gardens, is just good for the planet! If the commissoners want to regulate animals let them ban factory farming! Leave law abiding animal caretakers alone.
