What's your favorite idea for Huntsville?

Urban Chickens

Let us raise some backyard chickens, already. I've been monitoring the activity on this issue and see that there are ordinance proposals to allow most lots to raise 3-6 chickens. Let's do it, already. I would love to raise a couple chickens as educational tools for my kids and for the eggs.

Every argument I've heard against the idea is bunk. They don't smell, make noise, or devalue property.
