Following up on Matt's blog post last week on urban chickens, and on my previous post, today I found this remarkably detailed article in the Athens-Banner Herald on cities near Athens considering lifting their ban on chickens in residential areas. Rarely do you see proposed regulations outlined in such detail in a short news article, so I have to appreciate the reporter's diligence.
Interestingly, some of the elected officials are opposed to lifting the ban in part because of enforcement issues, including the fact that they have no place to keep chickens confiscated from property owners who violate the ordinance. But if chickens are already banned, isn't that a current (rather than prospective) problem?
Anyway, the chickens-in-the-city battles continue...
