Allow Edmond urban chickens

This petition had 840 supporters

We are a rapidly growing group of citizens who are genuinely interested in—even passionate about—keeping backyard chickens.  We believe that within reasonable parameters, this would provide learning, nutrition and put us on a level playing field with nearby communities where backyard chickens are permitted.  Numerous peer cities far more metropolitan than ours have adopted this policy and have seen fantastic benefits.

None of us are interested in large-scale production of meat or eggs and view these birds as pets as one would a dog or cat.  We know from experience that chickens are cleaner, quieter and require less attention from the city than currently accepted pets.  Our group hopes to educate others and dispel commonly accepted fallacies about these birds as well as promote a healthy way of living.

By signing your name below, you attest that you are a resident of Edmond, OK and urge the City Council to adopt policy to allow backyard chickens.
