To Calgary City Council: Chickens have existed in cities since the dawn of time, and they still exist all over the world. Benefits to raising hens in the City of Calgary include: 1. Fresh, healthy, delicious eggs, free of pesticides and antibiotics. 2. Chickens eat table scrapes, reducing municipal organic waste. 3. Chickens produce a rich fertilizer by-product, high in nitrogen, eliminating the need for petrochemical fertilizers. 4. Educational - teaches children where our food comes from and demonstrates responsible pet ownership(chores). 5. Great pets - Chickens are people-friendly. 6. Chickens eat bugs, reducing our backyard pest population. We, the undersigned, citizens of the City of Calgary, urge Calgary City Council, to update the Calgary Municipal Code in order to permit the responsible raising of backyard chickens.

    Chickens are beneficial in many ways, even as a therapeutic animal. Lots of other places understand that - why do we ignore this fact in Calgary?

    I vote in favour of legal allowance to have backyard chickens on my property when I'm living in a detached 2 storey house.
