    ...I am new to the BYC Forum and am very seriously considering getting a few hens for our backyard. Before I take the leap (which includes getting my landlord on board), I would like to see some urban chicken raising firsthand. Does anyone in Chicago have chickens and would be willing for me to come take a peek at your setup? I just want to be sure I do the research and see it up close before I commit.

    Thanks and Happy New Year!!

    Welcome, from Eastern Wa. Go to the where am I , where are you category and try to find the Illinois thread. You might be able to PM somebody near you. Or post that question there. Good luck!
