Make Way For The Chickens!
Citizens of one upstate New York city may soon be breaking fresh eggs - the US Department of Agriculture has called the city of Hudson a "food desert" - that's about to change... Last night the so-called "Chicken Law" passed: The Register-Star reports that Hudson residents will be allowed to keep up to five hens on their property - the law, which awaits approval of Mayor William Hallenbeck Jr., will "help people meet their needs for quality, cost-effective nutrition.
And according to the law, Hen's are a go - rooster's a "no" - Odors, waste and noise must be limited; no "free-ranging": the birds will have to be fenced in at all times; they can’t be used as fighters in spectator sport.
