To Toronto 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 Toronto include: 1. Fresh, healthy, delicious eggs, free of pesticides and antibiotics. 2. Chickens eat table scrapes, reducing municipal solid 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. 5. Great pets - Chickens are people-friendly. Their behaviour is interesting and entertaining. 6. Chickens eat bugs, reducing our backyard pest population. We, the undersigned, citizens of the City of Toronto, urge Toronto City Council, to update the Toronto Municipal Code in order to permit the responsible keeping of backyard chickens.

    Raising chicken can help us reduce stress. It's better to raise chicken than visit shrinks.

    I raised chickens about 2 years ago but a neighbor reported us & had to give them away. Would like to do it again in my neighborhood.

    I have been wanting to raise hens in my backyard. Please allow me to do so legally.

    I’m sure people already have chickens that are possibly hidden out of fear of losing their bird(s) and receiving a fine from By-Law enforcement. If it’s legal to raise them , then I feel this will give some freedom to both owner and bird(s).
