If you live in Provo please support Cindy Clark and the other council members who are proposing an ordinance that allows for back yard hens! The council meeting is on Tuesday!
This is the address: Council2@provo.utah.org
This is my off-the-cuff e-mail:
Have you been to the Wasatch Gardens Chicken Tour in Salt Lake City? It's like the Parade of Homes only for chicken coops! They show a wide range of innovative coops that all have one thing in common: CHARM! For many reasons we support city chickens on a small scale (no to poultry farms within city neighborhoods!) I don't think chickens and roosters should be allowed to roam the streets but I do think that it is simple to look after some hens and have it be a wonderful experience that will enrich the lives of our community members who choose to have a small flock. Also, I think it would be very ironic that so many cities allow hens but Provo wouldn't allow that freedom?
Many thanks to Cindy Clark for sponsoring the ordinance change and to the council members who support it!
