Panel created to study wild chicken problem

July 16, 2004

Fitzgerald-- Wild Chickens causing a big debate in Fitzgerald can rest for now, but not for long. Fitzgerald Mayor Gerald Thompson appointed a panel to study the town's growing flock of wild chickens.

Opponents say the hundreds of crowing birds are bothersome, while supporters say the rare birds are a treasure.

The panel studying chicken problems includes two opponents, two supporters and two members of the City Council. They'll work together to consider ways of controlling the population.
