Saskatoon family told to find new home for pet chickens
City prohibits chickens being kept as pets
One Saskatoon family was told they have to say goodbye to three of their beloved pets because of a city bylaw.
Max Murray, 12, has raised his pets since they were chicks.
Shane Travis, Murray's stepfather, said the chickens are very little trouble to keep. He built the multi-level pen they keep the chickens in.
"They love being in there," he said. "It is just like if you had a rabbit hutch."
In 2010, Saskatoon city councillors decided not to allow chickens in the city.
