Urban farming and backyard chickens are a growing movement nationwide that many in Ft Lauderdale would like to be a part of.

Dean Trantalis, Commissioner City of Ft Lauderdale
Bruce Roberts, Vice Mayor City of Ft Lauderdale

Fort Lauderdale commissioners, please support the domestic fowl movement by amending the city ordinance to allow a limited number of backyard hens, no roosters, as chickens offer many benefits.

    2. Update on our push to change the city ordinance to allow hens.

      We had our follow up meeting with the Commissioner and want to share the update. He is certainly not against this, and his open mind is a step in the right direction. We assured him that with proper guidelines this could work. We want him to understand that this is a strong movement that isn't going away, as the community support has been incredible. To date we have over 800 signatures! Do you think you could you get one friend or family member to sign on? That would be over 1600 signatures. Wow! Help us show the Commissioners that we want this by sending the link on to a fellow supporter.
      There is a Sustainability Advisory Board Meeting On
      Monday June 24 @ 6:30 PM at City Hall for anyone that would like to come out and show support. They will be having a guest presentation regarding access to healthy food and its benefits. Hopefully the Commissioner will be there.
      Thanks so much for all the help is getting this far. See you at City Hall.

      Its another step towards sustainability and healthy eating! Hens lay eggs without a rooster (the one that would make too much noise for neighbors). We normally eat unfertilized eggs. Eggs in stores need to be transported and stored at specific temps and packaged...none of this is "green."
