    I'm now officially known as "The Chicken Lady." The Chicago Sun-Times has an article about how I and others have been approaching the proposed chicken ban in Chicago.

    http://www.suntimes.com/news/neighborhoods/736324,CST-NWS-hoods11.article

    The videographer got some great footage of my girls on a REALLY cold day just after the New Year, too. (Launch the video clip under Related Stories.)

    The "getting online" part in the story is an oblique reference to these boards. If it weren't for the BackYardChickens Forum, we wouldn't have gotten so far!

    Thank you, all!!!

    Good article....I liked this part:
    "Chickens are good for the life of the city. My chickens get people talking to each other, talking to me. Children in the area are interested in the chickens. Elderly resident remember growing up with chickens when they were young. Chickens really are a good community builder."​
