come on people the city is NOT a place for livestock. There are health and sanitation issues because urban communities are closer together with their neighbors than rural communities. The smells, sounds, health issues, and nuisances associated with having chickens is not something urban citizens should have to put up with. Eggs are cheap enough even the organically produced ones so get over it and move to the country if you just HAVE TO HAVE your disgusting and unsanitary yard birds. You think you have the right to raise these chickens within urban areas but we who live in the city should have the right to not to be subjected to this especially since it's currently ILLEGAL. What does that tell you about the people who have them anyway? They're gonna do what they want anyway regardless. At least with the no vote it gives the law abiding neighbor some leverage if it has to go to court.
