the new amendment that was passed in 2011 in the state of florida farm act states you can have any animal or plant etc, that is benifical to man. now this is key ---no county or city or town can interfer and you can build without permits , fines, charges , so if they try to stop you refer them to the state, the state is the only one who can stop you.

Do you know where I can find this information? Would like to get a few chickens, and would like to have all my bases covered.

WHY CAN WE HUMANS NEVER LIVE WITH ANY CREATURE GREAT OR SMALL IN HARMONY TOGETHER? THE FLAWED HUMAN LAWS DOMINATE ANIMALS OF ALL SPECIES THEIR RIGHTS TO SURVIVE THAT's WHY!

We are allowed in Australia, I have a chicken pen which I will soon have a couple of chooks soon as my pen, at least like cats & dogs they won't go & poo in other peoples yards, plus they give you eggs & are good for the garden :) X.

Raising chickens not only benefits the environment, but organic eggs are more healthier for you. Flordia really....? GET WITH THE PROGRAM...Healthy for humans and the environment.

Hmm - seems kind of strange to me that it's acceptable to keep wild animals in possibly appalling conditions, but not domestic animals?

So after reading Marygay Chaples comment I guess this petition holds no value?

Jason Luckimus Maximus Cole

I could really climb up on my soapbox about this topic. I don't see where the government of any form can limit what domesticated pets we can keep. As long as the animal(s) are well kept and healthy, as well as posing no health and/or safety issue toward their owners or neighbors, they should have no say.

Owning your own chickens guarantees that the eggs you eat are healthy and will not contain any chemicals or hormones.

If you lived in the city would you want stinky chickens next door? I don't think so. I grew up on a farm & had our own for years. No matter if you clean coop every day they still smell bad, & where do you put all that manure. Bad idea in town. They belong in the country.
