    I do not yet have chickens but I would like to. I live in Jamaica Plain (part of Boston) and it isn't (yet) legal here. I went to a chicken race in Detroit a couple summers ago and it was really fun and funny and when there was recently some controversy over back yard chickens in neighboring Roslindale (also part of Boston) I was inspired and thought it would be a great way to bring attention to legalizing chickens in Boston. I was wondering what folks with backyard chickens in the Greater Boston area thought. Here is the link to a video of the Detroit www.modeldmedia.com/inthenews/chickenrace072710.aspx.
