Chickens In Toronto? Plan To Drop Ban Closer To Becoming RealityJuly 12, 2017 4:13pm
Toronto councillors are considering a pilot project that would allow residents in some areas to raise chickens in their backyards.
The move follows a survey that suggested that lifting the ban on chickens could be a popular move.
Councillor Justin Di Ciano says home-raised chickens provide a healthier alternative to store-bought eggs, and described them as a “cruelty-free” alternative to factory-farmed eggs.
Several Ontario municipalities including Kingston, Brampton, Niagara Falls, Caledon and Saugeen Shores all allow chickens to be kept in backyard coops.
