|Dear Commissioner:I am writing to voice my support of the proposed ordinance amendment that permits backyard chicken keeping in residential zones. I believe that it is a natural right of mankind to be able to raise his own food, and I believe that keeping chickens allows people to exercise that right. Since people have kept domesticated fowl for hundreds of years, the desire of the residents of Escambia County to keep backyard chickens should not be considered a trend or a fad because it is more of a desire to return to one’s roots of personal responsibility and self-sustainability.Legalizing the keeping of backyard chickens should be a simple matter when compared to the many complicated matters that Escambia County is currently facing.Please support the proposed “backyard chicken ordinance” with your vote.Sincerely,||
I Support Backyard Chickens
