Now that it’s legal to have chickens in Whitehorse, you might consider getting a few. I can finally come clean and say I had three layers for a year. They provided us with the most delicious eggs, and many hours of entertainment.
They weren’t noisy, they didn’t smell, and they didn’t attract foxes or bears.
After they got old and went to chicken heaven (we got them second hand so their laying days were already numbered when they came to us), I considered getting more, but I really needed a better insulated winter home for them (we insulated our greenhouse with straw and blankets, and added two heat lamps, but even so they did get frostbite on their combs during a couple of -40 degree stints).
Anyway, I do have a three-season chicken coop that will comfortably hold five or six chickens. It comes with two heat lamps and two water feeders. Let me know if you’re interested and I can provide details.
