    Inspired by the USA today article, I am writing my latest column (http://www.examiner.com/x-798-Denver-LowCarb-Examiner) about people having chickens (or ducks) in their back yard for eggs.

    I am in need of a quote or two from people who have a few chickens in a suburban or urban location and started raising chickens for the eggs. Even better if you are on a low carbohydrate and/or no processed food diet. I would like a picture or two (and permission to post them on my column) if you have them.

    Anyone interested can PM me or post to this thread with answers to the following...

    1) What inspired you to start raising your own chickens?

    2) What is the difference between your eggs and store-bought eggs?

    3) Do you recommend others start raising their own chickens?

    4) Did you have any issues with local laws concerning your poultry?

    Please add name you would like to use for the purpose of the story (screen name is fine) and general location.

    Not sure how detailed this story will be, but it will mention BYC for sure [​IMG]

    Thanks in advance.
