BRIDGETON, N.J. (AP) — A southern New Jersey woman is fighting for legal approval to own chickens she says she bought to eat ticks after her sons contracted Lyme disease.

NBC40 reports that Jamie Warner wants Bridgeton's City Council to change an ordinance to allow her to raise chickens.

Warner says she bought the chickens after her sons contracted Lyme disease while playing in the backyard. She says the chickens also help feed her family.

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