Urban Hens in Kamloops

Kamloops, B.C. – Starting June 21, 2016, Kamloops residents were permitted to keep two to five hens on single-family and two-family residential lots greater than 370 m2 within City limits.

Free, mandatory self-registration is now required. Visit www.kamloops.ca/urbanhens to complete and submit the registration form. If a paper copy is required, it can be picked up at City Hall reception.

The website also provides more information on everything you need to know about keeping chickens – from bylaws, to coops and supplies, to caring for hens. Visit www.kamloops.ca/urbanhens for a step-by-step guide.

This fall, there will be a two-night public information workshop on the basics of raising and caring for hens in accordance with the new Animal Control Bylaw amendments. Further details to come at www.kamloops.ca/urbanhens.
