Pricey Chickens in Chapel Hill

"Town Ponders Chicken Rules"

Now if any of you are familiar with Chapel Hill, "ponder" is not a word I associate with the folks living there. But, needless to say, the N&O used that word.

Pricey living for those chickens in Chapel Hill - a permit fee of $230.00 for having a coop that is 12 x 12 or permanently attached to your house - zowie! And you can't have chickens in your front yard, changes ownership limits from 20 to 10 chickens and extends ownership rights to all residents.

This stuff just boggles my mind and would definitely boggle my pocketbook. You know those eggs would be "EGG-Pensive".
