Chicago Alderwoman Lona Lane Digs in Against Chickens


Lona Lane, alderwoman in the 18th ward, thinks chickens are for the birds – and is prepared to pass legislation to ban them from her ward. Although she can identify only one complaint about the birds in her ward, she wants to ban them entirely as disease-carrying pests. She proposes fines of up to $1,000 and up to six months in jail for illegal chickens. Read more here.

If you would like to counteract Lane’s efforts, consider inviting her on the Windy City Coop Tour!
