    We hope this project will help us get closer to our goal of "A Chicken In Every Yard!"

    Ya, the picture is fantastic!!!

    Hopefully we'll be able to create a fantastic database of helpful information that will always be updated and current! If the community can really pull together we could even create some cool maps of all the areas that chickens are legal and use that to further our cause!
