Backyard Chicken Pilot Program

Backyard Hens: With hard work and diligence, the Backyard Hens Pilot Program has launched as "The Delran Eggsplorers". Twenty licenses will be granted to legally house up to four backyard hens (no roosters). The initial license is valid through December of 2017. License application, requirements and information packet can be picked up at the Delran Municipal Building on the kickoff date of June 13th. There is a $10 nonrefundable licensing fee associated with the application. Verification of residency and official chicken class certification, as well as a coop inspection by an Eggsplorers Advisory Board member, is mandatory. A few spots are still available in this program. Interested residents can contact the Township Clerk's Office at (856) 461-7734 ext. 103.  It should be an "eggciting" year ahead for our "Eggsplorers"!
