Many cities throughout the United States including Oakland, San Jose, Mountain View, 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 prohibits resident’s ability to keep hens for egg production. Get the facts here.
