Save the backyard hen!

I'm getting ready to leave town in two days and don't have a whole lot to report. In the meantime this morning's piece about a woman in Carmichael potentially losing her backyard chickens is a major bummer. It also sucks that we have gotten so far away from self-sufficiency and a natural sense of where our food comes from that we would prevent someone from keeping a few laying hens.

In the article the neighbor complains about the chickens cooing when you know there are dogs barking in the neighborhood. I would take a boisterous chicken coo over a dog bark any day and I say that as a dog owner.

agreed it sucks as the law is enabling the jerk of a neighbor
