Urban Chicks

Here is a site I just found that is very interesting. It is something that I wish I could do if my city would change ordinances: Back Yard the city.   Here is an additional resource: How to keep chickens in the city from WikiHow. Urban chickens appear to be the next movement in the Victory Garden genre. Maybe I won't need to move to the country after all.

This is hilarious! I know what you mean about wishing the city would change the livestock ordinances. Somewhere, I read that Wichita allows backyard chickens, but I have not followed up on that. At some point, I may decide to challenge our town's "chicken ordinances". MANY of our ordinances are covered in chicken feathers. :)

Oh, before I forget, I am sponsoring a New Year's GiveAway over at my place...if you are interested.

Happy New Year!

I read somewhere that during the Great Depression, people house goats on top of buildings in NYC.

I would love to have backyard chickens, and I even live sort of country-ish. Sadly, though, in a subdivision, with stupid subdivision rules about livestock. An then of course, there's the Akita...

But I still want chickens.
