Well, it is that time of year. I received a nicely worded letter from Brigham City reminding me that it was time for my annual Chicken permit renewal.
Honestly, I didn't think they would send out letters. I assumed it was up to the owner to remember. I was met by a very nice lady who took my $10 and chatted about how nice chickens and ducks can be.
