***To be registered for the meeting please Post here or email at: [email protected] Hello Everyone. I am happy to say that it is official we are going to have a Central Florida Poultry community meeting/Law change meeting. ***The date of the meeting is to be on Saturday Feb 28th starting at around 2:45 and later..enought time for everyone to come out, even those people from Tampa and Miami. (we might have another one on Sunday March 01 not sure yet) We will have the meeting somewhere Central and public for many to come out and assist... a nice park so bring all the family! LOCATION: Englewood Park-6050 Lake Underhill Road Orlando, fl 32807 If you google this in maps you can see there are many highways near that area since it is a very central location in orlando. Now this is a park that is near main intersections which is great because it will catch the attention of many other residents in the area. ***This meeting will offer everyone information in everything needing to know on keeping poultry of all types. Anyone owning chickens, ducks already like myself, etc can bring them out for a type of show and tell of your animals. We might even have some food available but lets see.. ***If you have poultry intersted in trading or selling please bring them along as well, as there will be many people present interested in purchasing and/or swapping... This meeting is also a way to promote people in our community in having backyard poultry in Orlando, FL as many people in our community are in need of supplying their families with something extra each week due to these economic times and people need to know that keeping chickens for eggs is a great way/alternative. And as many other chickenstocks have in the past, we will have the Media come out to assist us in the meeting as a way of showing our large community on raising poultry. (to be present, Orlando Sentinel Newspaper, La Prensa newspaper, Wesh 2 News, WFTC Channel 9 News, Telemundo Orlando, etc anyone we can have present will come! **I have contacted them and they will be present to come to the meeting! So bring on the change! As many of you might know, we as a community are trying to change some laws regarding the ownership of poultry in our own properties. This is a way to promote Urban poultry/backyard poultry and will open the eyes of many in need, in these times to also raise poultry. For more info on the laws please read here: https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=120019 This will also open the eyes of the mayor, and board of commisioners to change these laws as well. So this isnt just a swap meeting/hang out meeting. This is a community meeting to help others as well know the alternatives of keeping poultry, going green and providing your families something else in these times!! ***To be registered for the meeting please Post here or email at: [email protected] We hope to see all Central FL Residents in BYC present! Thank you and have a blessed day!
