Hens Illegal in Much of the Country

Here in Virginia Beach I'm working to change the laws to allow backyard hens. We've found friends among environmentalists, 9/12'ers, homeschoolers, and libertarians. Freedom does bring people together. We have not, however, found many friends on city council. Many are now practicing civil disobedience as well as getting involved politically to try to change things. It is absurd that the city can tell you what to do on your own property when you are keeping to yourself and not bothering a soul.
