The Town of Tecumseh is planning holding a public information centre on the proposed urban hen licensing pilot program in the town.

The Pilot Program proposes a limit of six female chickens, four months or older, for properties under 10,000 square feet.

For properties over 10,000 square feet, an additional hen is permitted per 3,000 square feet up to 12 hens.

Owners will require a license that will cost $25 per year and provides bands for each hen. The town will conduct an on-site inspection to ensure compliance prior to the issuing of the permit.

The pilot program would be conducted for two years with evaluation conducted at the end and a recommendation to Council on the program.

A meeting for the information center has not been released yet.
