Colwood residents should have the right to backyard chickens

How many people that live in Colwood live on an acre of land?

Not very many, most lots are around 8,000 to 9,000 square feet, but if all other regions are on board with having a chicken or two on your own property, why is Colwood holding back?

I do not see a problem with that, do you?

I think it’s time for the City of Colwood to start listening to the taxpayers of Colwood instead of brushing us off.

I think it’s a right to have animals on your own property such as cats, dogs or pigeons, why not a couple of laying hens as long as they are looked after and cleaned up after like any other animals?

I myself would like a couple of hens to get fresh eggs daily, but if we could have chickens, I would talk to all my neighbours first before the chickens came.

I joke why did the chicken cross the road? To move into Colwood, he didn’t like living in Oak Bay.
