    Has anyone else seen chickens in downtown Chicago? The last three times I have been there (I go every 6 months) I have taken the METRA NW line into downtown. On the south side of the tracks just prior to entering town and, I believe, after the Kedzie stop there is what can only be described as a tenement building. Living in the backyard is a flock of mixed large fowl...presumably egg birds. They have a small coop and run. I wonder every time I see them how they pull it off.

    I thought they were legal in Chicago.
    They are in New York, Seattle, Los Angeles, St. Louis, Dallas, Houston, San Francisco, etc.
