I have been imploring Saanich council for over 3 years to do something about my neighbor's backyard chickens.
The building I live in is adjacent to their backyard.
The chickens are about 7 meters from my bedroom window and my balcony, which is my only outdoor space.
They are ill cared for and are often in distress.
(There are 5 hens in a small coop..they are always in there...never let out).
They start cackling as early as 5 am..and often go on for hours.
The coop is never cleaned and it stinks so bad that it permeates my entire apartment and makes me ill.
I recently submitted complaints that I had gathered from 11 other residents of the building complaining about the noise and smell.
I was AGAIN told there is nothing they can do.
How is it fair that we all have to put up with this??
Can you please help?
