Mom Fights For Chickens

ChickensA New Jersey woman is fighting to keep the chickens she bought to eat ticks after her sons contracted Lyme disease.

Jamie Warner wants Bridgeton City Council to change an ordinance to allow her to raise chickens.

Warner says her boys contracted Lyme disease while playing in the backyard.

After that, she says, she visited an online chicken forum to ask posters if chickens would eat ticks. She says, “A lot of people were like, ‘Oh, chickens will eat anything.'”

Warner says the chickens also help feed her family.


Councilman Mike Zapolski says lawmakers are researching the issue and don’t want to create problems in the rest of the city by changing the law.

Bridgeton is a city of about 25,000 residents in southern New Jersey.
