I have two 6 month old roosters, who are 3/4 silkie. I am looking for a good home for them, and can send pictures to anyone who is interested. They are not aggressive at all except with each other sometimes. They were hatched and raised together. I am hoping that they won't be eaten. Free to good homes.

CBC Winnipeg interview about backyard chicken experience.

Winnipeg's city council is evaluating a bylaw similar to Vancouver. CBC interviewed me to learn more about first hand experience with back yard chickens.

City of North Vancouver Public Hearing on the Zoning Bylaw amendment and Small Creatures Limitation Bylaw amendment
Monday, September 17, 2012, 7PM
City Hall, 141 West 14th Street
North Vancouver

If you feel comfortable addressing council, we encourage you to show your support by sharing your opinion. The intent of the Public Hearing is to give all members of the public a reasonable opportunity to present their point of view, to offer suggestions, and to indicate support or concerns. Once the public hearing has concluded, no further information or submissions can be considered by council. If time permits the same evening or at the next available open meeting, the proposed changes will be brought forward for second or third and final reading under the Bylaw section of the Council Agenda.

Don't forget to wear your CLUCK buttons if you have them; we will also have stickers available for those of you who do not.

Let's pack the audience!
details and CNV draft of the amended bylaws

Chickens found homes, thanks to those who were interested!

Brown leghorn pullet and ameracauna pullet looking for a new home. We have too many for our coop size. $10 per bird. We thought we'd just let the leghorn go, but would be willing to say bye to ameracauna too if it meant they'd be company for eachother. 3.5 months old.

Hi Emily
I have an egg operation at an organic farm in Richmond and could take your cockerel if no one else steps up.

Local, organic, rural, and/or urban, food production is a mainstay of life, and doing it well leads to wellness. From farm to kitchen, discussions relating to food--and the community arising around it--belong here.

If you have to leave your village, how will you get where you want to go? By car? Preferably not, both for your wallet and the earth’s sake. This category is for all discussions relating to how we all get around.

A human right? After food, most feel shelter is the most important necessity. A place of shelter is also the start of a community. This category is for all things relating to shelter, housing, affordable housing, homes, renewable heating systems, green buildings, heritage, and our built environment in general.
