A press conference is being held this Wednesday, April 22nd, in support of proposed changes to the laws regarding backyard hens in Sacramento.
Please join us!
Come out to McClatchy Park (3500 5th Ave. at 33rd St.) at 10am on Earth Day (April 22nd) to help launch the campaign to amend the chicken ordinance within the City of Sacramento’s code. This exiting press conference will officially announce the effort to make hens legal within the Sacramento city limits.
Many cities throughout the Unites States including Oakland, Los Angeles, Denver, and Portland (just to name a few) allow residents to raise laying hens. Let’s encourage Sacramento to follow their lead.
A backyard flock provides nutritious eggs, soil amendment for gardeners, pest control, and countless hours of amusement. Traditionally, a small kitchen garden and a few hens were common in urban backyards. The current economic climate has served as an impetus for Sacramentans to roll up their sleeves and grow their own food. The chicken ordinance inhibits resident’s ability to keep hens for egg production.
Join local politicians, organizations, and residents as we kick off the campaign to repeal this ordinance!
