Do you have any more information on this bill? The link just takes me to the petition homepage. I am very interested to find out where the bill is currently in the state legislature.

Currently in Cobb County, a homeowner is not allowed to have a single chicken unless they own 2 acres of land. That rules out about 97% of Cobb residents.


Thanks!

I received a reply from Stems n Roots website (the originator of this discussion posting). They said that they were not able to find any updates on the bill. This leads me to believe that the bill is either in committee or has been allowed to die a silent death in committee :-( I also did a pretty extensive google check and could not find any updates on the bill.
