Backyard Chickens

A brown chicken stands in the grass with some clover flowers in it. A second chicken pecks at the ground behind the first.

Backyard chickens are permitted in single family residential zones in West Vancouver after a new bylaw was approved on April 4, 2016. If you’re thinking about having backyard chickens, please read the guidelines and learn more. 

Having backyard chickens requires responsible care of the chickens and increased awareness of your role as a good neighbour.
