Allow Backyard Chickens in Caledon

This petition had 172 supporters

We the undersigned are petitioning the Town of Caledon to allow the keeping of backyard chickens.  We believe that within reasonable parameters, this would provide learning, nutrition, pest control, and put us on a level playing field with nearby communities where backyard chickens are permitted.  A number of cities far more metropolitan than our beautiful town have successfully adopted this policy.

We are not interested in large-scale production of meat or eggs and view chickens as pets just as cats and dogs are pets.  We know from experience that chickens are cleaner, quieter and need less attention and space than other pets.  They also require less attention and expense from the town than other pets.  We want to educate and help break some falsehoods about chickens and promote a healthy, sustainable way of living.  This includes teaching our children about sustainability, responsibility and hard work.

By signing your name below, you attest that you are a resident of Caledon, ON and urge Town Council to adopt policy to allow backyard chickens.
