A few months back I took up the cause of stopping junk mail from entering my mailbox. After placing a heated post-it note on the mailbox requesting no more junk mail, the deed was done! A form was signed and BOOM, no more junk mail. It was a major win, but there remain other causes in the world that I now must take up. Today I want to bring to your attention the fact that the city of Reykjavik doesn’t allow chickens as pets!
I know, it was as shocking to me as it probably is to you. Reykjavik needs to get with the times and allow chickens in the city. The city is currently behind the chicken trend – unlike places such as Madison, Wisconsin; Calgary, Alberta; and pretty much anywhere in Asia. After contacting some governmental guy, I learnt that I will never be allowed to have chickens as they are considered livestock, not pets (FYI-bunnies are perfectly fine)
Chickens have to look out from neighbouring cities such as Kópavogur to catch a glimpse of Reykjavik. Its heartbreaking and I say bring the urban chicken movement to REYKJAVIK! Especially those Polish chickens that the have super poofy feathered bed-head look (similar to David Bowie’s hair from the Labyrinth). I love those chickens.
So get the word out! And help me get chickens to the backyards of those wanting fresh eggs and the sheer joy of seeing cute little chicken faces every morning (no roosters though, roosters are just annoying).
