BYC Update

This is the image that was used on the front page of our local newspaper.

Well, it's been a long, exciting few weeks. I have been researching, calling, speaking; we have appeared on local TV news and we've had two newspaper articles done, all about the issue of backyard chickens. My hens are still at my friends house. Several are still friendly-ish, some are stand-offish and one seems to have disappeared.

Tomorrow at 7 PM is the next city council meeting. Lots of folks will be there, all wearing yellow to support BYC, and several are going to speak. If you are a local reader, please consider yourself invited! I have also invited the TV station to come to the meeting. Please be praying for a good outcome and calm nerves!

ETA: Big Poultry wrote a letter pleading with the city not to allow backyard chickens. The council suddenly went from supportive and friendly to "NO!". I wonder what money changed hands or what threats were made behind the scenes?

I love comments! Please feel free to leave kind words, new ideas, requests for recipes, even gentle criticism if needed in the spirit of Proverbs 16:24.
