Not only chickens, but all food sources as well, with children to care for the livestock if needed also should be allowed on the property.
Soldotna citizens or Homer or seward or any other city in Alaska the Last Frontier should be allowed this Freedom and if people don't like it then they can move out of the LAST FRONTIER back to the Lost Frontier down under Canada.
Since the City of Anchorage can have chickens, the villages of Kenai and Soldotna should be proud to have fresh eggs in such a romote area.
I can not believe that Soldotna does not have chickens but allows noisy cattle and horses every weekend preforming rodeos. We need chickens for 4-H projects.
I loved raising chickens as they are alot of fun to watch, kind of like people are.
The bad thing about chickens is that they will decide to pick on another and they will peck it and stomp it as flat as a pancake and go on like nothing happened. The only thing is, i can see in their eyes that they are continually worried that they might be the next one to get stomped to death and thats why they are so jumpy and always looking around them out of fear of whats coming next. People are like that as well never cetain of whats coming next in the form of an attack ment to destroy or kill.
I love watching chicken people go about their business, i can sit and watch for hours on end in total amazement at the things they do.
Will people with loud kids, or too many kids be next on the restricted list for city ordinances? No one knows for sure how these chicken people will react or what they will do next as they stop others rights down nonstop, so all we can do is sit and watch in total amazement as they go about their business. Or maybe not.
OPPS! Does this include Frozen chickens in their freezers and whats next for Kenai residents? I still can't believe this debate & poll on the city of Kenai with all Des Rueees!
Oh, how disappointing that we can't raise chickens in the City of Kenai. There's so much land available and so little time. If chickens were to be allowed, then anyone could expand to cattle, hogs, goats, and other livestock members. There are so many individual fences around town that would serve as mini-corrals. The Leif Hanson Park strip would serve as a great grazing area too. I know back in the village a family used an old purse seine to cover the chicken area so they wouldn't fly away The camo type cover was the talk about the village as the home was located right as you entered town. The animals would blend in with the moose population and it would be such a nice community in which to live. What an opportunity to enhance our communities culture!
With chicken or pets comes responsibility. Regulations and rules need to be set, in black and white. I have two labs that never leave my yard, but one of their favorite pass times is to chase robins, spruce hens,or the neighbors chickens and ducks when they wander into my/(their) yard. Now if my lab gets your chicken in MY/their yard, well that is my neighbors loss. If someones dog/cat goes into a neighbors yard and chases his chickens and kills one the dog/cat owner is responsible and should pay for chicken. But I do not think neighbor should be allowed to shoot a dog or cat that is in their yard. Even responsible pet/chicken owners have animals get free from them. There is many things to consider to make this an ordinance and inforce the rules.
Good luck with your animals
Oh heavens,chickens,then it'll be PIGS,and ect. Let's keep
chickens on the farm/ranch. We live in bear country,and if
Anchorage can have chickens,then maybe that's why they have a bear problem.
