City Chickens Revisited
I wrote about keeping chickens in the city a while ago. Since then a couple of families I know have launched chicken projects in the city. Some friends from Cincinnati got chickens a few months ago and are now getting their first eggs. Its fun to talk with them and share their excitement. Another family in Portland, Oregon has also started a chicken project. They are blogging about their adventures at Growing Roberts. It's exciting to see the line between city and farm starting to blur. Urban/Suburban micro-farmers could change the face of food and farming in this country.
