100 Years Ago Everyone Had Chickens

Urbanites have embraced the chicken! Fresh eggs are no longer reserved for farmers or rural areas because now the chicken has become part of urban sprawl. I was surprised recently to visit a very high-end home and witness homemade chicken coops with live chickens right there in the backyard of this million dollar home. Do you think chickens are acceptable in subdivisions? Well my instinct is not in that particular million dollar neighborhood because of HOA restrictions, but I’ve come to find out that chickens, in a lot of instances, are acceptable and are moving in to suburbia! Not only that, but this trendy chicken ownership has become quite popular. So I’m not really sure which came first the chicken or the egg but I know that currently it’s chic to be all about the chick!
