    That's so cute! Does she have her own flock or does she just take care of others'?

    I had one that was 8 years old that recently disappeared. I am not at all happy about that. I think this lady being in LA is what is unique. LA does not offer many places that are right for having chickens.

    I want to be a chicken sitter. I know that any time I want to go out of town its always an issue to find someone who is capable of taking care of my chickens while I am gone.

    I'm still trying to figure out where in Los Angeles she could possibly be. I am thinking they used LA generally and she is actually in Encino or an outlying city that would allow chickens. I just can't see liberal LA allowing them!

    Actually, chickens are legal throughout the L.A. area and Encino is part of the city of Los Angeles. Here in Burbank, where I live, we are allowed 25 hens (no roos). We are a separate, unincorporated city but Santa Monica to Downtown chickens are legal!

    I live right smack in the middle of the city of Los Angeles. The real urban part, just a stones throw from south-central, behind a liquor store. And as long as your coop is 25 feet from your house you can have up to 5 hens (no boys) legally without any sort of permit. Yay for urban chickening! They are actually not as rare as you would think, although not exactly common either.
