Keeping chickens... on the farm

Thursday, March 17, 2016

On the March 7 agenda was an item about permitting the keeping of chickens in the village.

Residents Bill Pitts and Sue Mahoney told trustees they were in favor of the idea for anyone whose property was big enough to accommodate chickens.

Trustees Kerstin Trachtenberg and David Wendt expressed concerns about predators and odor. Noise was another concern mentioned. Trustee Bob Gruenewald said he grew up on a farm and had experience with chickens.

“We never found any that were odorless or quiet,” Gruenewald said. “I like chickens; I like eggs, but I think they belong on a farm.”

No action was taken.
