In order to keep the chickens safe from the wild, the city is making a chicken sanctuary available in Bellard’s.
The sanctuary, located in Chicago’s Lakeview neighborhood, will be the first one in the city to have all its chickens housed in a coop and be certified by the city.
The sanctuary will have chickens from around the world, and they’ll be fed organic chicken broth, chicken and egg replacers, fresh vegetables, and fresh fish, according to a release.
They’ll also be given a chicken crate to move around, and will get a bird feeder and a bird house to house their eggs.
The birds are being raised on the sanctuary’s farm and have been given their own outdoor habitat and will be able to go outside and play.
They can also feed their own chickens and other birds in their cage.
The chickens’ diet will be organic and all the chickens will be given water and a bottle of organic chicken formula, according the release.
“It’s really about protecting the health of the chickens,” said Bellard of the sanctuary.
The city will offer free chicken samples to people who purchase a chicken at the sanctuary, but residents will be required to buy the sanctuary a permit to do so.
Residents can also bring their own food for the chickens to eat and the sanctuary will sell the products at a discounted rate.
“We want to make sure we’re not just throwing out our food,” Bellard said.
“If we are going to do that, we need to make it a community effort.”
According to the release, the sanctuary is also looking for people who want to become a member of the shelter to join them and get involved.
