Duncan pecks at backyard chicken coop rules
Eating local, eating fresh, things we try to strive for.
And some believe that backyard chicken coops and their eggs, are another way for quality organic sustainable living.
So should they be allowed in the City of Duncan?
Councillor Michelle Bell wants to allow backyard chickens in Duncan as she said it’s a good alternative.
“Nowadays people are really conscious about clean food, and food sustainability is a big issue as well. So people want the opportunity to have their own food and know where it comes from, so it is mostly about sustainability.”
But opposing Councillor Martin Barker believes using local farms, and not having your own, makes much more sense.
“I agree with the BC SPCA’s stand on it, that they also encourage sustainable foods, avoiding mass produced eggs and chickens by utilizing farm yards. That is a better sustainable food practice.”
Nothing has been decided though, and all City of Duncan residents will be receiving a survey in their property taxes, asking you whether you’re for or against backyard coops.
