    Hello everyone, I'm brand new to Chicken raising.. I joined this site because I would like to learn as much info as possible for Backyard Chickin'ing in Burlington Ontario Canada.

    So with that said I will tell you a little bit about me..

    I have no chickens at the moment and never have.. That is why I joined here :) I want to be sure I know as much as I need to know before I start to raise some!
    The types of chickens I would have... well I would have to think about that :) don't know much about Chickens!
    Some of my hobbies include Zoo Keeping, Theatre, Art, Child Entertainment, Halloween, Christmas, Event planning, Gardening...
    I live in Burlington Ontario Canada in a stand alone house in a complex.. I don't even know if raising chickens in my back yard is even legal..
    I used to breed reptiles and I had over 59 of them at once.. Every summer I spend 3 weeks Zoo keeping at a local Zoo in Ontario..
    I have a Big backyard with tons of grass, gardens, a vacant shed, big deck, small pond, ect. ect.. When I say big I mean for a House in a city.. It would probably be 1/8-1/4 of an acre..

    Any one with information on Backyard Chicken'ing in Ontario Canada could you PRETTY PLEASE send me some info on by-laws and such??
    Thank YOU!
    CALVIN COX:lol:

    Welcome to BYC!

    I was up in Burlington earlier this year visiting relatives in Hamilton then driving to Niagara Falls.

    You'll really enjoy getting some chickens. It's way easier than reptiles; which, by the way, I'm shocked you had over 59 of them!

    You will want to start by finding out the local restrictions on keeping poultry (if any) and go from there!
    Go to the website for your city (or call them) to see if they have any restrictions. Most areas will allow poultry but may limit roosters.
    You can also CHECK HERE to see if anyone has posted any regulations related to your area.

    Again, WELCOME!
