Kamloops backyard hens popular despite being illegal
Backyard hens are technically illegal in Kamloops. But that hasn't stopped homeowners.
If you know anyone raising chickens in their backyard in Kamloops, you may be friends with an outlaw. As it stands, hens are not allowed on most Kamloops properties. You've got to have at least an acre.
But many homeowners have ignored the rules and built a coop anyway. In fact, egg-laying hens are apparently so popular in the city, there's a waiting list to buy them.
One Kamloops man has five hens in his downtown yard. Daybreak's Samantha Garvey paid him a visit.
