Chicken Vote Tonight By Full Council
They're dirty, smelly, noisy. That's the rap on chickens in the city. That's the perception that backyard chicken supporters in La Crosse have to overcome. None of it true, says Natalie Rose Kemp, who's behind the backyard chicken movement. Moreover, says Kemp, chickens come with benefits. She says they eat ticks and mosquitoes, which means they can reduce the level of vector-borne illnesses. The La Crosse city council is scheduled to vote on the chicken proposal at a meeting tonight.
