Free Ranging in Burnsville

Liberalchurch had a church picnic at Prairie Oaks Farm, a community co-op farm, yesterday afternoon. We enjoyed spending an afternoon on the farm where there are free range chickens (both broilers and layers) and turkeys. At least one person commented on the benefit of having chickens free ranging in the yard. On Keller Lake, we have have free ranging Canadian geese. Same effect.

So it was with a renewed interest that I read this report about an 11 year old boy making his plea to the Burnsville City Council to keep his small flock of free range chickens in their yard.
