A West Babylonian spoke on behalf of the chicken ranchers in the town of Babylon asking the board to allow “free-range chickens” at local homes during a Wednesday afternoon meeting. At the I Just Want To Word In My Garden And Hang Out With My Chickens Shirt hearing, local resident Robert Frampton spoke to board members to ask them to ease restrictions on the town code to allow residents to keep chickens in their homes.

“There are many responsible chicken owners in Babylon who take good care of our flocks,” he said during the I Just Want To Word In My Garden And Hang Out With My Chickens Shirt meeting. He also talked about concerns of local residents and groups, including concerns that chickens could spread salmonella. However, Frampton says backyard poultry contributed only 0.13% of all salmonella infections.
He also said that backyard chickens are allowed in all five counties of New York City. “If in New York City in a tiny backyard of an apartment in New York City you can raise chickens, how come we don’t have chickens here in West Babylon?” he says. He also affirmed that his family has been raising chickens for over 100 years and that everyone should have the right to grow and raise by themselves.
During the onset of the pandemic in March, when food unsafety was high, people bought and raised small flocks to collect eggs. The ordinance modified the “animals” part of the law to allow certain properties to allow a small number of ducks, both draft ducks and hens, and chickens, but no roosters. But first, they have to register with the planning office and pay a $ 25 annual fee. The I Just Want To Word In My Garden And Hang Out With My Chickens Shirt zoning officer will then check the chicken’s living conditions and make regulation of compliance.
On Christmas Eve, ‘Doc’ Hughes threw live chickens from the roof of his business. The chickens are tagged on the legs and people can redeem them for prizes in Hughes’s shop. Anyone who catches a chicken (sometimes a turkey, some say) gets an award and keeps the chicken for Christmas dinner.
In recent years, Christmas Chicken Capers has grown from raw chicken to rubber chicken with gift cards from local retail stores.
