Kelti Baird telling the Southern Alberta Council on Public Affairs, the time is right for Lethbridge to allow residents to keep up to four hens in their backyard.
A self-proclaimed "urban Chicken enthusiast" engaging members at last week's meeting of the Southern Alberta Council on Public Affairs.
Kelti Baird is behind a movement to allow up to four chicken to be kept in Lethbridge backyards.
Baird says urban hens are a polarizing issue, however the noise level is no worse than talking to someone in your back yard. Baird says if approved, she would like to see a backyard hen program here very similar to the one operating in Red Deer.
Lethbridge City Council is expected to hand down a decision about an urban chicken pilot program in March.
