We, the undersigned, would like the right to urban chicken keeping in Jacksonville/Duval County, Florida. We would like to change the city ordinance to allow a limited number of hens to be kept on private property. We believe our current code protects us from any public nuisance or health hazards (Sec. 656.403). We believe that chicken keeping is a healthy, economic, and sustainable way to feed and enrich our families and our communities. We believe that this type of thinking will also exhibit the positive living that is a part of our wonderful city to potential residents.
