Urban Chicken Undergroud in Frederick County


From the Frederick News Post:

BRUNSWICK -- Chickens are allowed in New York City, Baltimore and Chicago. But Brunswick will not be joining that list of cities in allowing a limited number of chickens kept in residential areas.

A group of residents hoped that Brunswick would consider adopting an ordinance to allow each household a limited number of chickens. The City Council voted against drafting an ordinance at its Tuesday night meeting.

Chickens were once common in Brunswick, as in most areas of America, as a source of meat and eggs. But as cities modernized, farming and food sources became a mainstay of rural areas.

With the rise of organic farming and the local food movement, many people are looking to raise their own chickens. Thecitychicken.com is a resource for chicken owners in urban and suburban settings. READ MORE...

It is a load that raising chickens will cause noise and disease to break out in the rural town of Brunswick. Chickens have been raised in urban areas for centuries! Fight for Chickens!
