The ‘City Chicken’ website keeps a list of laws from various North American cities regarding the keeping of chickens.

See the list here.

This is pretty ridiculous. Thank goodness we here in Vancouver know for certain the illegality of chickens in our backyards…

Calgary allows chicken’s to be raised round the home. Great eegs. Don’t know if they will allow butchering in the city, though.
