EARLVILLE, N.Y. -- A congressional candidate for the 22nd Congressional district has one less thing to worry about in his election bid, after charges for having too many chickens were dropped.

TEA Party Patriot candidate Michael Kicinski was headed for trial on charges of having chickens at his Madison County home. He had a standing agreement with the Village of Earlville, establishing a limit on how many chickens he could have. They later created a law against having chickens and tried to charge Kicinski.

But a release from the village Thursday said that a search warrant showed he is within the limit of the original agreement. They say they're dropping the charges.
