Gillette Backyard Chickens
In 2015, Casper, Wyoming said "yes!" to chickens in town. They put specific regulations in place to address any citizen's concerns. By signing this petition we are asking that Gillette could follow suit with the same regulations.
Do's and Dont's of Backyard Chickens in Casper:
-Do have up to 6 chickens per occupied single family residence.
-Do provide fully enclosed and ventilated coop. Chickens must have access to coop and pen at all times. For their own safety they must be kept in coop from dusk to dawn.
-Do keep chickens within yard. If yard fence height doesn't contain chickens, their wings must be clipped.
-Do keep coop under 60 square feet and under 7 feet tall.
-Do keep area clean. Chickens should have access to clean water at all times. Feed must be kept in airtight metal bin to discourage vermin and insects.
-Don't have roosters
-Don't butcher within city limits. Chickens can be rehomed by animal services.
-Don't let them roam. Chickens "at large" will be taken to animal services. Reclaiming fees apply.
-Don't have coop close to neighbor's fences. Coops must be in backyards only and 6 feet from back and side property lines. If backyard backs to an alley it may be 3 feet from the property line.
-Don't allow chickens to come into contact with wild ducks or geese, for their own protection from disease.
