Dear editor, In regards to hens in the neighborhood, they are hardly noticed. There are 6 down the road from me kept in a pretty painted hen house with lattice and hanging flower boxes....

Well put Ms. Shine.

Like anything else, so long as the owners are not infringing on someone else's rights this should not be an issue.

I agree, we don't elect officials to monitor harmless chickens. Monitor essential services and their appropriate use of funding. quit trying to control everything.

As long as the chickens are not causing problem with noise or odor or running free, not sure what the harm is. But just like dogs or cats, a neglected animal is a problem for the neighborhood and should be delt with.

I'm very happy to hear of your positive experience with your neighbor's chickens.

What scares me are the slob owners and one could move in next door to anyone.

If you just look at this recent continual garage sale issue you will understand that if you end up with a slob neighbor it will take a long time if ever for the city to address it.

Look how many sidewalks go unshoveled, and how many lawns that have grass longer than the ordinance allows.

Once again lifelong, a few bad apples don't spoil the whole bunch.

They do if they live next to you and spoil your bunch!

I wouldn't have a problem if the city could be counted on to enforce noise, and smell,ordinances.

But my confidence in that is zero.

Neighbors having year long yard sales becomes an issue and the city didn't even know the had an ordinance on the books for it already. Proof.

They should've stop those sales after a week. But no, after many complaints and no action it gets brought up in council meeting to establish some rules.

And they already have them in place but no enforcement.

No confidence in city to enforce the current ordinances, so have them make more? just not seeing the logic... or the need for the government to run my life.
