Here in Virginia Beach the city council is steadfastly opposed to backyard hens. We've been petitioning them for over a year and they refuse to even bring the item up for a vote. This includes one libertarian leaning council member who just sees it as a fringe issue. We just want the freedom to do what we want in our own yard without bothering anyone. Hopefully we can vote some of these jokers out of office in the Fall.
Despite an elitist city council, I've met at least 20 other families who have backyard hens anyway. The law can't be enforced, and it will change eventually. Here's a picture of the chicken tractor we just made for our 3 girls.
