...and many, many more!

Henrico citizens want to allow urban livestock responsibly and reasonably to empower their community to be more sustainable.

Like more urban cities and counties such as Seattle, Portland, Brooklyn, L.A., Atlanta and more, we would like to responsibly have laying hens allowed in the average back yard. We do not need to reinvent the wheel; we can take existing zoning laws and incorporate them to benefit our community and provide food and education for our families.

As a Henrico citizen, I want and support sustainably allowing and legalizing CHICKUNZ!
