Thirty-five ‘backyard’ chickens registered/microchipped in city
Last week, 35 “backyard” chickens–owned by seven families–were registered and microchipped with the City of Perrysburg.
The microchipping was done by Toledo Zoo veterinarians with the assistance of Jeff Studer, Perrysburg animal control officer.
The registration and microchipping fee was $75 for each family.
