    Greetings from a friendly neighbor from the north!

    I'm currently residing in Brampton, Ontario- in Canada.
    I did some research on local laws in the three cities. Since I have family in Mississauga- had to research there, Brampton for my own purpose, and Caledon- where I will be moving too shortly.

    I hope this can help someone out there.

    I spoke to by-law officers directly as well as city hall.

    For Mississauga:
    - City does not permit any fowl of any type

    Bylaw officers advise:
    - Don't keep roosters
    - They don't come looking for backyard coops unless a neighbor complaints

    For Brampton:
    - City allows 2 hens to be kept
    - No roosters

    For Caledon:
    - If your zoned residential, no backyard fowl of any type

    This sort of got me puzzled because the lot sizes in this city are in the acres. So I did approach a by-law officer about this.

    Bylaw officers advise:
    - We won't come looking for backyard coops unless a neighbor complaints
    - Keep your neighbors happy by giving them a basket of eggs every so often
    - Use pine chips to keep the odor down

    I hope this helps anyone from any of these cities.

    Do you think it would be a problem if I had six hens in Brampton?
