Backyard chicken bylaws are working for many Metro Vancouver residents

Backyard chicken bylaws are working for many Metro Vancouver residents

Backyard chicken farmers may seem like a rare breed, but their flock continues to grow. When Vancouver city councillors OK'd backyard chickens in 2010, just 13 people stepped forward to register hens. At least 220 other residents have since taken up the hobby, and with new registrations coming in at a record-breaking pace, impressions that backyard eggs are just a flash in the pan may be overdone.
