DeKalb citizens should have the right to responsibly own backyard chickens on their own property as pets or as a healthy source of eggs. The City of DeKalb should not have control over what we do on our property as long as it does not cause a nuisance to neighbors.
Why is this important?
Many suburbs surrounding DeKalb allow residents to raise a small number of chickens for a healthy source of eggs (including Naperville, St. Charles, and Batavia). Everyone should have the right to know that their eggs come from healthy and cared for chickens that are free from hormones and antibiotics if they choose.
