To Carleton Place town 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 town of Carleton Place 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 town of Carleton Place, urge Carleton Place town Council, to update the Carleton Place Municipal Code in order to permit the responsible raising of backyard chickens.
