    The Charl Obs was looking for chicken owners to step forward for the story a few weeks back. I would have loved to have them come by here but I was not about to call attention to my chickens here.

    I'm sure there were LOTS of folks in the same situation - not willing to go public with their names used for fear of backlash by their snooty neighbors who feel chickens are too lowly for their neighborhood.

    We got us a LOOOOOOOOTTTTT of transplants here who probably have no idea what end of a chicken produces the egg. It's hard to find anyone from Charlotte, much less North Carolina in Charlotte anymore. When I first started working uptown, people asked you what neighborhood you lived in. NOW, they ask "where are YOU from??".

    And, it's really really hard to find a home in Mecklenburg county without some sort of neighborhood covenances with all the new developments and constrution. I personally wouldn't want to live where there are so many 'rules' - in some cases down to what type of grass you have to sow so that everyone's houses look just the same. Ah well, different strokes for different folks, I guess...

    Anyway, I just hope none of those folks have problem because they agreed to be interviewed. It is good to see a local article about chickens and a VERY prominent mention of BYC!

    NC! I forwarded the article on to my parents so they could see too! LOL! I'm not even near Charlotte, but they still think I'm a bit wacky for raising chickens in the backyard!
