We've received several comments on the pros and cons of backyard chickens and now we want to know: Do you think backyard chickens should be legalized in Wilmette?
The discussion started when we posted a story Monday about New Trier High School junior Zan Fisher requesting the Village of Wilmette host a hearing on backyard chickens.
Margaret Lamason worte on Winnetka-Glencoe Patch:
Good for you Zan Fisher! My niece and nephew have them in Winnetka and it has been a great learning experience for all of us. My brother and sister-in-law built a nice little house for them and somehow the neighbors co-exist and, daresay enjoy them. Plus we all enjoy the eggs. (Unfortunately, the first round of them were prey for the neighborhood fox but hopefully the new "family" will avoid that tragic end).

This is not a farm community and I'd hate to wake up to the sounds of a chicken being eaten by a racoon.
