Cooped-up Gatineau residents flocking to new hobby: backyard chickens

Description (Dublin Core)

While Ottawa itself does not allow backyard chickens, its sister city of Gatineau, across the Ottawa/Outaouais River does. As with other locations, the pandemic has led to a spike in the raising of chickens. This can be attributed to the sense that people finally have the time to take care of the birds and a feeling that during difficult times the ability to be self-reliant and 'get back to basics' is safer than relying on supply chains and big stores.
