Allowing city residents to raise hens for both eggs and meat in Miles City should be a unanimous YES! Chickens are fun, productive, useful and can make pretty good pets too. I personally think you should also allow Turkeys as well in a limited amount as they love people , and can literally die of broken hearts if by themselves, lay huge delicious eggs, and, like chickens, serve dual purpose and do not scratch ground like chickens but are equally adept at controlling insects and grasshoppers included. Most individuals or families interested in Chickens or Turkeys have already researched what type of housing and care they require. But, if any help is needed, look online for Grit Magazine's Community Chcken enews, or Mother Earth News online archives. Both have great advice on everything you will need to know including which breeds to pick, shelters, etcetera.
