It was with a big smile on my face that I read the can't-miss article, "Don't Call Her Chicken,"in today's Chicago Sun Times.
Why the smile? The article and its accompanying video is all about how Linda, a regular commenter here on the Urban Chickens blog, is making a difference in the fight to keep chickens legal in Chicagoland.
I've gotten to know Linda through her comments here on the blog, and I can see that she's just as enthusiastic about urban chicken farming in Illinois as we are in California. After all this time communicating by text, it's delightful to actually see her (and Maisy, Betty and Selma) interviewed in the video. Although all that snow on the Eglu makes me shiver!
If I had to think of an ambassador for the Urban Chicken movement, I'd put Linda's name at the top of the list.
Keep up the great work, Linda! Let us know how we can help you keep your chooks legal in Chicago.
