My neighbour is upset because I have a cock and pullet in my yard.

Here in Calgary in the last municipal election, we had a single-issue candidate that was all about backyard chickening.

He was running merely to gain exposure for his cause, now Edmonton is piloting a program.

I imagine we will follow suit shortly.

Around here the problem isn't keeping chickens its properly slaughtering the meat. You can't do it outside.

I've always wanted an urban goat to guard/eat my lawn.

I don't have a problem with backyard chickens.  It's roosters I have a problem with.  My neighbour in small town Mexico raises fighting cocks.  Those farkers are up way too early.

Holy Jebus on a pogo stick, how many Ferguson threads can Fark milk out of this story? It's starting to make the Zimmerman case overlooked in comparison.

"Guelph, Ont., also allows in-city egg collecting, and in Alberta, communities such as Ford Saskatchewan, Black Diamond, Turner Valley and Red Deer either have pilot projects underway or laws allowing urban chicken farms."

Of course Guelph does,  it's granola / hippy / environmentalist central here,  with the giant Agriculture University and all.

Phoenix allows urban chicken farming. Best part is when they die they'll be cooked already.

The correct nomenclature for the University of Guelph is "Moo-U"  or also "U-Goo"

both things you stated is why urban chicken laws typically forbid roosters.
1.) they are noisey. and contrary to popular belief, most breeds crow 24/7. it's an announcement of territory.

2.) they can be used in fighting.

the only reason you need to have a rooster around is to make more chickens. other wise, all your eggs will turn into Balute

Hillbillies in Edmonton need something to put next to their outhouses and find a new use for their beat up wrecks on cinder blocks.

Yeah it is funny how the hate flows regionally.  If you attended:
Guelph, Laurier, Waterloo, Brock, Windsor = you HATE Western
Everyone else hates Queens.

Those chickens don't have the right to exist. Why won't Obama do something about Canadian chicken farms? Why won't he walk like a chicken, and cluck like a chicken? Why? Why does the world taste like chicken? Why? WHY? Bahckk! Be-bahck!!

It is a dumb list. But to be fair to Japan there has been no one kill or any shots fired.

Brazil is at war with itself and should be listed for their rate of violent crime.

I once tried to get a backyard goat and the city of Windsor told me I can't. I would later try to convince them it was my dog.

We in the US could learn from Canada - as awful as their government has been, their issues pale compared to those in the US - no doubt.

However, anyone who fails comprehend that Canadian prosperity - to whatever degree it may exist - is extraordinarily dependent upon a stability that results entirely from an implicit US guarantee of security... paid 100% by the people of the US.  If Canadians actually had to pay for their security, it would not only profoundly affect their pocketbooks, but also their psyches.

You are welcome.  And I am the farthest thing from a US jingoist. (check my posts over the last decade or so)

The reason the US so generously extends it military beneficence over us poor Canucks is because it really doesn't want a heavily-armed country on its longest border. They'd rather pay for us to be weak than worry about us becoming an enemy. It's a deal I've never been personally happy with, since the US is by far the biggest threat to Canadian sovereignty in the world.

Yeah, about that canard you seem to have swallowed...your "guarantee of stability" costs us many hundreds of lives, a metric assload of money, and has currently broken the back of our military.

If you were a lot less armed and aggressive Canada would be a safer and more secure place, not the other way around. The world too would benefit in the same way, and for a bonus your economy would stabilize which would be an even further benefit to everyone.

Believe it or not, blowing shiat up all the time isn't really helping.
