Chicken farm proposal leaves ‘more questions than answers’

The online group Cayman Animal’s Watchdog told Cayman 27 a chicken farm proposal approved by the Central Planning Authority leaves more questions than answers.

Taura Ebanks of Cayman Animal’s Watchdog echoes concerns expressed in CPA meeting documents by the Department of Environment and the Water Authority over water sanitation.

Ms. Ebanks said she’s not necessarily for or against a chicken farm, but says she believes the public needs some questions answered.

“Before anything goes forward, I think anyone that has a concern about the animal welfare in terms of the quality of life while the chickens are alive, what happens to the chickens if they get sick, if they contaminate the water, those concerns extend into our population and we really need to be informed,” said Ms. Ebanks.

The plan calls for two large chicken houses for a total of 10,000 birds, an office building, a litter composter, and a water tower all on a two acre site in East End.
