The new ordinances are to be presented on Aug 8, 2006 at a public hearing in Tacoma WA. There are a number of glareing problems with the model they decideed to use.
An Aviary that moves fewer than 30 birds a year out the door (sales or whatever) isnt subject to the Ordinance.
Let me tell you a little story: 3 years ago a breeder in Pierce County had sucha horrific food supply and contaminated water supply that out of 300 breeders they got 8 banies that year. The reason was because of abuse and neglect. The birds were so sick they couldnt produce. Under the 30 bird rule they would be exempt from the ordinance even though they easilly competed with our other friends in Pierce County as the worst of the worst.
I will write more later but wanted to let everyone know that I am trying to deal with medical issues and can not be as active as I once was. I will however stay involved and help where I can.
One more thing I know my spelling sucks you dont have to tell me LOL.
