Hi, my name is Colin Fly and I'm a reporter with the Associated Press based in Milwaukee. I'm working on a story about backyard chicken enthusiasts, especially those who have chickens for the "pet aspect." I need a few people across the country to talk to me for a few minutes about why they love their birds and funny stories about them. I really need people located in cities vs. rural areas, especially cities where you need permits, etc, to have poultry in the backyard. For me to use your comments, I'll need your full name, age, location and other occupation. Please feel free to e-mail me at [email protected] if you'd like to talk chickens. Thanks!
