    A report about chickens!!!
    Chicken keeping is getting really popular in the city!
    Our local news had a report about chickens and how great they are to have!
    See here: http://www.myfoxstl.com/myfox/pages...ale=EN-US&layoutCode=VSTY&pageId=1.1.1&sflg=1
    I noticed in the past few months lots of people I knew either just got, will soon get, or are thinking about getting chickens.
    Long live urban chickens!!!!![​IMG]
    BTW, Kirkwood is a very nice neighborhood and I am surprised that people really mind all those chickens!

    When we first got chickens we thought we'd be kind of unique for this area because there are so many farms with commercial chicken houses and you can't have backyard flocks if you raise commercial chickens.
    Now whenever we're out shopping at the farm store and such, my SO will tell people that we have a backyard flock and we're finding out lots of other folks do too.
    Oh and it's always my SO that brings the subject of our chickens up first in public. The same SO that doesn't like chickens and claims he'd cook em all if it weren't for my feelings. [​IMG]

    Our back yard neighbor loves the fresh eggs.

    We are getting lots of friends now who ask regularly about our eggs.

    I want the chicken palace! That was an awesome coop. I'm glad they mentioned that the chickens can eat kitchen scraps - I hadn't known that when I got my chickens and it really cuts down on feed.
