We started this blog in 2010 as a central point for people interested in legalizing backyard chickens in Vancouver. At the time, we had one enthusiastic chicken keeper, Heather Havens, share her experience and knowledge with folks eager to get prepared for the eventual bylaw change.
Sadly for us Heather has moved back to Portland, her enthusiasm along with her. Most of the resources on this site are taken from her personal experience. But now, it is time to start building our own local knowledge on keeping urban hens in Vancouver.
That is, if the community feels that this resource is worthwhile. At the moment I’m keeping the blog barely alive off of the side of my desk. I can envision a much expanded site with resources and information updated regularly, and maybe forums so that community members can discuss the ins and outs of raising healthy chickens.
So, what do you say Vancouver, should we keep at it? If so, what would you like to see on the site?
Let us know and we’ll do our best to keep the site alive.
