Sign the petition to allow backyard hens in Maywood, IL!

Resident Tammy So has started a petition to allow backyard chickens in Maywood, IL. Maywood is one of the only towns in its area that does not allow backyard poultry. Having a reliable supply of fresh eggs would help the residents, since the town has struggled for years with no grocery stores. Residents of Maywood can sign the petition here.
