Backyard Chickens In Peoria

Even in major urban environments like Chicago, Brooklyn and Dallas, homeowners are permitted to keep chickens in their backyards. It's time for Peoria to catch up and allow chickens in backyards across the city on a reasonable basis.

Some Benefits:
- eggs are a great source of protein
- fewer bugs, which chickens eat, along with grass and garden scraps
- chickens, gardens and rainbarrels are key components that work together in a comprehensive, sustainable way to help solve Peoria's food desert and Combined Sewer Overflow problems.
