What do Living Culture viewers think about chickens in Salem?
Last week we asked viewers what they thought about Salem's chicken ordinance. The polls were open for 5 days, and 100 votes were cast. Here are the results.
Q: Should Salem allow chickens?
voters should decide 5%
Q: Do you plan to keep chickens?
already do 14%
Q: Where do you live?
Portland Metro 10%
I was a little surprised by the fact that 89% of respondents believe chickens should be legal, yet 28% don't plan to raise chickens, and 31% are undecided.
