Citizens everywhere are increasingly committed to the production of local food. A sophisticated vegetable garden, buying local produce and vegetable baskets is gaining popularity.
The service of chickens, introduced in Quebec City and around the world a few years ago, is now wider than ever. This ecological initiative is increasingly being used to support municipal development plans.
According to the survey conducted in 2016 by Poules en Ville, the main motive of Quebec citizens to keep chickens is the possibility of consuming fresh eggs with better nutritional qualities.
The second reason it is often mentioned is the desire to have young pets and companions. We find out about these two important chapters in all chapters around the world. This follows the ecological and pedagogical aspects that pertain to animal health and zootherapy, among others.
Eggs laid by urban poultry have the advantage of not having to travel a thousand kilometers to get to our plate, and all of them are newer and more nutritious. The nutritional quality of eggs is important to consider, since many studies show that eggs from free hens provide more vitamin and minerals than eggs from the industry, as they have access to a varied, balanced and complete diet.
WASTE FOOD WASTE
Being able to bring a table of chicken scraps is also an important factor that activists use as a theme to convince the affluent of urban hen communities. Many European states promote it as a means of mitigating the desert.
Having said this, it should be noted that a hen will not eat all your meat. No problem here with using our poultry to achieve a zero waste goal! Information dissemination and education will remain the best means of clearly explaining to citizens and cities how chickens can be integrated into reducing crumbs.
THINK OF AN ANIMAL GOOD
Another argument for preserving urban chickens is the improved quality of life of these animals. After users understood how the enclosed chickens were enclosed in natural light, on grass and on adequate living space, some carried it bravely. Animal rights groups and experts are directed to the issue of animal health.
Though practices have begun to change in Canada, the transition is far from clear. By 2022, it is expected that it will completely eliminate at least 50% of all building hens housing. This transition involves the construction of new possibilities and creating great investments for all. Animal health and poultry health are at the heart of the changes that are taking place.
Having chickens in your area you keep healthy and prevent risky infection. Having chickens at home also means making your family more conscious of where food comes from and the freedom of the food. The education aspect of this activity is also increasing in many schools and institutions, particularly in Europe and North America.
In fact, the urban hens provides plenty for parents and teachers who want to educate their children on respecting animals and humans. Through young people, we can teach compassion and develop many factories to overcome discrimination, reduce violence, manage conflicts, and promote cooperation and a sense of responsibility among young people.
She wants to eat some chickens in the backyard. Hybrid chickens purchased can be eaten as eggs, but their flesh is not tender. It is true broilerus, who turn their energy into the mass of the muscles, which are stimulated to phthisis, because their flesh is more tender.
It can be easily imagined that, within twenty years, a greater number of micro-farm broiler chickens would be hatched for personal consumption. Likewise, more and more centers are available to kill chickens without pain.
Other methods of keeping hens at home include soil fertilization. This technique is used in many countries. For example, chicken manure is an excellent fertilizer, because it is rich in nitrogen. Know that it can also be put together.
Finally, by scratching the ground in searching for certain little animals, hens help reduce the presence of harmful insects.
Chicks have endearing personalities and can provide us hours of pleasure when they connect with our parents. Even more important, if we look at the Sustainable Development Goals, which were approved by the United Nations in 2016, caring for chickens is an integral part of at least 5 17 of the major goals achieved by 2034: zero hunger, good health; successful, clean energy, affordable cost, sustaining cities and communities, sustaining consumption and production.
ANIMAL IS NOT OF ONE MIND
Although the custody of urban chickens has the most reliable advantages, hundreds of assemblies have not yet separated the breeding grounds from the pets, nor have they clearly formed norms concerning this use. To sanction a ban on urban chickens, municipalities have repeatedly proposed an argument that the presence of poultry in the city could promote the outbreak of diseases that endanger industry, scale, and public health.
But no evidence or studies is supported by this supposition. Citizens are often reluctant to ask for municipal information, lest they remove their chickens or cause problems with a visit from the inspector. A clandestine action took place in several cities. Approval and monitoring of hens keeping in Quebec, as well as elsewhere in Canada and the United States, have been the most pressing requirements for several years.
That said, during the ten years in Quebec more than fifty states, including Terrebonne, Gatineau, Quebec, and Sherbrooke, have been confined, and have determined and determined the protection of urban chickens.
In recent years, the sale of chickens to citizens has increased, the demand for laying hens has increased, and market production has increased steadily. It is, therefore, imperative for municipalities to abide by and provide a multitude of means to maintain poultry surveillance as well as biosecurities criteria and protection against viral diseases and the needs of livestock.
Standards and certifications will certainly be established, as well as systematic, exercises, and documentary inspections to more accurately support the services of breeding hens. Cattle pilots should help small, large and inexpensive veterinary services to obtain vaccination. In this way we have better control over the epidemic and viruses that are present all over the world.
Through civic education and access to information, a shared awareness of food freedom is important. Food security is a major issue, and urban chicks are a crucial part of solutions that citizens can use quickly for maximum benefit. Organizations, states, veterinarians and animal health groups are working together today to practice, promote and promote the health of chickens.
The urban hens are present and do not generally disappear. Municipalities are unable to ignore the extent of the phenomenon and must implement appropriate regulations as soon as possible, reduce punitive measures, and continue to pursue urban agriculture.
