Hens In Local News

http://billingsgazette.com/news/local/residents-push-to-own-backyard-hens/article_3b66e6d8-f134-58cf-9b25-74b709945ae8.html?mode=story

Several members of the Billings Backyard Hen Initiative, which now numbers well into the hundreds including signed petitions, have gone on record in the past as stating that we did not want to be contentious, nor did we wish to fight with our city.

We do feel that we need to clarify something. Please don’t mistake a gentle, considerate approach and lack of a desire to bring the city a fight with weakness or an inability to fight back. It has been our solid belief that when given the actual FACTS of the issue of urban hens, that our elected officials would realize that their fears are unfounded and sincerely consider this issue. This group is not going to give up and go away. We believe in this issue and have seen it successful in too many other places… Billings citizens deserve to be allowed to produce their own food in the simple, easily managed form of gardens and urban hens. We’re not asking for cattle and pigs or a factory in our backyards. Be reasonable! (“>

    We have the facts on our side and are prepared to do what it takes. Billings will have a Chicken Ordinance. This is issue is too important to let a few negative comments stop us. Our voice grows stronger and louder with each email sent to the City Council. If you chickens, want chickens or support people who do, ask what you can do to help. Together we will prevail!
