"We do not need chickens in our backyard"

At the Monday night meeting of the Durham City Council - 17 spoke in favor of allowing residents to keep hens. The Durham Committee on the Affairs of Black People, made impassioned statements against changing the law to permit chickens. Activist Victoria Peterson said, "We do not need chickens in our backyard."

Durham City Council members want more time before deciding . . . . to be continued.

I don't think my opinion should be made public.
