Lisa Schaal-Urban RE Vitalization Group and Jessica Lane-Cream City Hens need 1000 signatures to request that the common council add or amend an ordinance that will allow residents to keep up to four backyard hens. Please sign!


* Target: City of Milwaukee Common Council
* Sponsored by: Lisa Schaal-UrbanRE Vitalization Group and Jessica Lane-Cream City Hens

We are requesting that the common council add or amend an ordinance that will allow residents to keep up to four backyard hens.

1. The keeping of chickens in the city supports a local, sustainable food system by providing an affordable, nutritious source of protein through fresh eggs.
2. The keeping of chickens also provides free, quality, nitrogen-rich fertilizer; chemical-free pest control; animal companionship and pleasure; weed control; and less noise, mess and expense than dogs and cats. The purpose of this petition is to provide support for standards for the keeping of domesticated chickens. It is intended to enable residents to keep a small number of female chickens on a non-commercial basis while limiting the potential adverse impacts on the surrounding neighborhood.
