Borough of West Chester, PA: allow the raising of laying hens by your residents (SIGNATURES NEEDED FROM WEST CHESTER BOROUGH RESIDENTS ONLY)

This petition had 47 supporters


As more and more families are moving toward local, organic food and attempting to incorporate sustainable practices in daily life, backyard urban chicken keeping is becoming more popular. Recently, many towns and cities across the country have created pro-chicken ordinances. I am requesting that the Borough of West Chester, Pennsylvania reconsider their current restriction on raising laying hens. Backyard chickens make great pets, and offer a fresh food source as well as natural mosquito control and great fertilizer for your garden.
It is suggested that new ordinance would take into account the following:
-number of birds permitted per household
-the regulation of roosters
-permits and fees required for keeping chickens
-chicken enclosure/containment restrictions
-nuisance clauses related to chickens
-slaughtering restrictions and,
-coop distance restrictions in relation to homes or property lines
