The Durham Environmental Advisory Committee (DEAC) is hosting a webinar on backyard chickens on Tuesday, May 4 at 7 p.m.

The webinar will offer important information for those living in rural areas and considering backyard chickens where allowed, as per local area municipal zoning by-laws and regulations. The event will discuss key considerations, including whether it’s right for you, set-up, bird selection, and care.

Presenter bio copied from DEAC:

Dr. Margaret Fisher is a veterinarian with over 30 years of experience working with both large and small animals. She is a founding member of the River City Chicken(RCC) group which came together in 2009 to advocate for urban hens in Edmonton, Alberta which became a reality with a pilot project in 2014 and a full fledged program thereafter. RCC has assisted many municipalities develop hen programs and is very active providing it’s incredibly popular “Chickens 101” which is a required course in many urban centres in order to facilitate hen licenses. Dr. Fisher is happy to share her urban hen knowledge with her colleagues in veterinary education seminars as well as members of the public who are intrigued by the idea of having hens in the city.
