Chicken advocates want revote in Fox Lake
Proponents say trustees did not consider issue seriously enough
FOX LAKE – There’s an underground chicken movement in Fox Lake.
Despite the Fox Lake Village Board denying, in a 4-2 vote, an ordinance that would have allowed some residents to raise hens, several residents plan on keeping the prohibited poultry and want the board to reconsider.
Rebecca Boettcher and her husband, Ryan Erber, both 30, acquired two Barred Rock hens for free when the store thought they were going to die. The black-and-white hens have lived in a coop behind their small, yellow home since May.
