Found this article from CNN Money on this morning, I never knew Portland, OR was so chicken friendly!

"There's certainly an audience for it. Chickens are all the rage in Portland, where longstanding city regulations allow residents to keep up to three of them — but no roosters — without a permit. Even Mayor Sam Adams has a brood: three hens, all named Alma. (Adams let his chief of staff's daughter, Alma, pick the names.) Hundreds of chicken enthusiasts will turn out on Saturday for Portland's seventh annual Tour de Coops, a self-guided stroll through 25 backyard hen houses, including the mayor's own."

Awesome!   I would love to see that in Brevard County.  Why not?  No one needs to keep roosters that crow.  Hens are quiet and peaceable, and beautiful.  Ever see a Buff Orpington or a Black Australorp?  They are gorgeous!  Why I could imagine a live chicken festival.  Contests for Biggest Egg, Best Color,  Most Colorful Hen, you get the idea.....
