Petition for Backyard Hens in Prince George's County, MD


We believe that backyard chickens are wonderful pets that provide many benefits to their owners and to the community. We respectfully ask that the county, cities, and towns pass resolutions in support of backyard chicken keeping, with the following conditions:

1. No roosters
2. Birds shall be kept within a secure enclosure and not allowed to run beyond owners' property boundaries
3. Enclosures shall be located no closer than 25 feet from nearest neighbor's residential building.
4. No more than 6 hens allowed per residence

Backyard hens bring joy to their owners, and also eat insects, produce healthy eggs, and provide excellent garden compost. When kept properly, like any other pet, they are clean and safe.

Signed,
