Help Make the Gals Legal!

These three hens have a group name: Ethel Mabel Merman. Each goes by the three-part name. They're lovely ladies, great egg producers, and illegal in Toronto.

But change is in the air--possibly. There's talk of allowing chickens in Toronto, and a debate, starting with the Licensing and Standards Committee, could begin very soon.

Sorry to mix metaphors, but it's time to get our ducks in a row.

Please consider signing the petition to make backyard hens legal in Toronto: www.torontochickens.com/Toronto_Chickens/Petition.html. The more signatures we have when the chicken debate heats up, the better! Please take a moment to sign the petition, and perhaps even urge friends and colleagues to do so. 

Many thanks--from me, and from Ethel Mabel Merman.
