Miami Dade County Council: Allow citizens to legally keep chickens in their backyards

In these challenging economic times, sustainability and permaculture have become viable options in every community. These choices encourage individuals to minimize their impact on our environment while taking a proactive stance in terms of pesticides and GMOs. As we learn more about the impact of shipping our food and the conditions of large scale farms, it is a logical next step to encourage our citizens in creative options. 

We believe the local ordinances on keeping a limited number of chickens must be revisited to allow for our changing economy. While we understand the reasons for these restrictions in the past, many of those justifications are no longer valid. Join us in exploring new ground in sustainable living and permaculture in Miami.

      I have a vegetable garden; composting worms; do not use pesticides; only use green cleaning products; have energy efficient appliances and windows. I also drive a Prius. A few (2-4) hens do not make a farm. Chickens are wonderful pets; help control garden bugs and provide natural lawn fertilizer. They are less noisy than dogs and wild birds.

      I want to raise chickens so I can eat eggs that I know are natural and chickens are really nice pets.

      I'm fortunate enough to live in an area where I can (and DO) have chickens and believe that the citizens in Miami-Dade should be allowed to have them as well!

      I would like to have my own fresh eggs. The store's eggs are not always fresh.
