Chicken therapy organizers plead their case

Naperville’s Planning and Zoning Commission met yesterday, and commissioners recommended the continuation of the chicken therapy operation, Touch My Heart. The business operates in the backyard of a single-family residence near Flambeau Drive and Peshtigo Avenue.

Richard and Wendy Montalbano, who operate the organization Touch My Heart, have been offering therapy activities with chickens to adults with special needs. However, their operation —which currently houses 17 chickens in coops — is not in compliance with the municipal code.

Commissioners recommended giving the Montalbanos an 18-month window of time to continue their backyard operation out of their home as they seek a permanent site that can accommodate the program.
