    I’ve always wanted to keep chickens in my backyeard. Today in the Chicago Tribune there is an article talking about how it’s leagal to keep them. WOW – I had no idea – always thought it was illegal.

    Anyway, it’s 10 degrees outside today so I wont be buying any chickens anytime soon. Cant wait until the spring. I have all winter to plan. I have a huge backyard and 3 kids to help. This is going to be fun!

    Thanks,
    M
