The second thing that I found out was that The Landmark, our local paper, wants to come out and learn more about what we're trying to do here. They're going to take pictures of the coop and the girls. Boy! Should I be doing something to primp them for their photo shoot?
My dream is that in a year from now we can have walking neighborhood tours of people's backyard gardens & coops and maybe some friendly competitions. Wouldn't it be wonderful for the kids to all get together over in Kiwanis Park and show off their pet chicks?
But the biggest, and most important, news is that we are confirmed for the hearing on the ordinance.
THE VILLAGE OF BROOKFIELD, ILLINOIS WILL BE MEETING TO DISCUSS THIS ORDINANCE ON JULY 25TH, 2011 AT 6:30PM AT THE VILLAGE HALL.Please, please come out, bring a neighbor, and show your support. Even if you don't want to raise hens, help the folks who do enjoy this wonderful hobby currently or leave the option open for folks in the future.
