    I have 5 chickens as well and I have no problems at all. I live in a town in NL . It's no different than having dogs,cats,ferrets. As long as there's no rooster and we keep it to small numbers,it's works great on a regular size lot. More and more towns and cities are allowing it. There is a right way to do it. Hopefully, Stephenville will get on board. Good luck!

    With all that's going wrong in the world today, it's rather foolish that Stephenville City Council, harass someone over keeping chickens. Is this where tax dollars go?

    It's like my elderly neighbor said, people today complain because the wind is blowing..

    I don't agree with the municipality on this one; very much going in the wrong direction! How can we in one moment be all for going green and then slam the door on simple projects that do so. Being self sufficient is a simple approach! It was not that long ago that drying clothes outside was considered "not the thing to do"; there were/are bylaws made to stop it and now it is a very good thing to do! Seems to me far to many rural communities are doing their best to make sure they have no reason to exist! Why not bring in some basic rules for how "livestock" could be acceptable instead of just saying no! Yet another good example of how gov'ts at all levels no longer represent the people who elected them.

      I see nothing wrong with Chickens in a pen. I have seen horses tied up dozens of times on private land within the town....no trouble to find their trail. Just walk up Hansen Highway some days and you find yourself stepping over their droppings.....I don't mind....Reminds me of a simpler time.

      Chickens are for farms, today's day and age what would you gain by having chickens? Then the Roosters, how fair is it to anyone to have these things making noise all hours of the morning. The rats and all the other varmints they attract. If I can't mow my lawn until a decent hour what give your Roosters the right to make annoying noises? GET RID OF ALL LIVE STOCK it's not farming country.
