DEBARY, Fla. (AP) -- A family's small but technically illegal flock of chickens that help the family's autistic son won a 60-day reprieve from the city's code enforcement board.
The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports that 2-year-old J.J. Hart has become attached to his family's chickens since his parents got them earlier this year. The boy has autism spectrum disorder,
J.J. talks to the chickens -- something he didn't do much with anyone before.
On Wednesday, the city's code enforcement board made a temporary decision that only delayed a potential $100-per-day fine under the current law.
The case opens the door to a community campaign to allow the birds in yards around town.
