Chickens a bad idea

If people want fresh eggs, there's no shortage of other places to get them

We have been conversing with a lot of our friends and acquaintances in Parksville regarding chickens in your backyard and not one person or persons has agreed that we would benefit from this.

You go to your backyard for peace and quiet. Most of our backyards we have spent a lot of time and money on  and you do not want to hear and smell chickens and varmints behind you.

If you want chickens, their place is on at least an acre of property so that you do not affect the neighbouring homes. They do not belong in a development such as Maple Glen or any small lot that backs closely onto another.

Our property values will also decrease if this happens. If people are that concerned, fresh eggs can be bought at many of the farms in the area.
