Hawkeye's Dan Frankian weighed in on Toronto city council's consideration of lifitng the current ban on barnyard chickens:

 

TORONTO - Some Toronto residents with a hankering for their own fresh eggs could soon be in luck if city council approves a pilot project that would lift a ban on backyard hens. Four Toronto wards would be part of the project and comes as part of a motion to review the city's list of prohibited animals, which currently includes chickens.

A survey included in a city staff report filed in May suggested that lifting the ban on chickens could be a popular move. “There's a lot of benefits, for sure,” said Coun. Justin Di Ciano, whose west-end ward will be part of the pilot project. Home-raised chickens are a healthier alternative to store-bought eggs, he said, and they keep away pests. He also characterized them as a “cruelty-free” alternative to factory-farmed eggs.

Hawkeye’s Birds of Prey Pose for Pictures at SickKids Scrubs in the City Gala

On Thursday, June 1 2017 Hawkeye and team had the pleasure of showing off our birds of prey to over 1000 guests at the SickKids Scrubs in the City Event held at Toronto’s own Evergreen Brick Works.  Our beautiful Eurasian Eagle Owl and Harris Hawk caught the attention of party goers at this Marrakech themed party donned in their Moroccan inspired costumes and vividly coloured gowns all for great pictures with our magnificent birds.  Our birds of prey fit in perfectly with the exotic décor and entertainment.  Guests were able to get up close and personal with birds, learn a little about them and pose for a picture.  Who doesn’t want that picture on their Instagram or Facebook page ‘exotic birds and party gowns’!

news casalomaCanada Day for Hawkeye and team was spent at the magnificent Casaloma in Toronto, ON.  A major tourist attraction for anyone visiting, Casaloma was constructed over a three-year period from 1911 to 1914 and became a museum in 1937.  With its beautiful gardens and architecture, it is a popular venue for weddings, parties and film productions, but sees tourists, groups and schools daily.

On July 1st, 2016 Hawkeye had the privilege of bringing our magnificent birds of prey to display for the visitors at Casaloma.  In tow with us were 2 peregrine falcons, our owl 'Boo', and a bald eagle.  In between our demonstrations, visitors were able to get up close for a picture with Boo.

We look forward to our next adventure, who knows maybe we will see you. Hawkeye is available for your next event, a company picnic, camp or gala. Contact us today.
