At the request of Albany Common Council Majority Leader Daniel Herring, who sponsored the initial ban on farm animals and fowl within city limits, Realtor David Phaff created an online survey to determine the real estate community's opinion on city chickens.
After his survey was discovered by numerous pro-chicken folks who answered in support of urban fowl, Phaff is apparently trying again with a more private survey. This evening we recieved a forwarded copy of the email below.
We are conducting a survey regarding the proposed amendment to the Albany City Codes regarding the keeping of hens. Your response would be appreciated. This survey has been modified from its original version.
Here is a link to the survey:
