    chicago-suburban areas did you notice the article in the Chicago Tribune - Sunday 2-19-12 edition regarding an Oak Park lady who is an "urban chicken consultant,". Nice article and accompanying video at: www.chicagotribune.com/chicken-help

    Seems like more will be in demand in urban areas - chickens may end up being # 1 pet in America- step aside puppies and kittens

    Cyndi, you might remember me as Greenhaven from Homestead.org. We got together once at canning time, but it was several years ago and I know you see a lot of faces at your place! [​IMG]

    Oh, and darn it, where can I find info about the get-together?? I'm just a little slow this weekend...
