LETTER: ‘Why it is legitimate to have 2 pitbulls on my property, but not 4 chickens?’
[EDITOR'S NOTE: The following is a Letter to the Editor, written by a Reader. It does not necessarily reflect the opinion of The B-Town Blog nor its staff:]
I have received a notification from the city of Burien saying we are only allowing 3 chickens. My hens are all very quiet.
I am struggling to understand, why it is legitimate to have 2 pitbulls on my property, but not 4 chickens? Also never mind the neighbors decomposing rusty car in the driveway?
Now I have to get rid of some of these docile, quiet egg laying hens which in a professional enclosure so no noise or smell is emitted.
Has anyone else on the blog had any success in receiving permission to keep chickens?
Thank You for your help!!
