The syndicated radio show Deconstructing Dinner has recently broadcast a great (first) show about Backyard Chickens as part of their Farming in the City series.
In this DD show, the producers have featured four segments recorded by Bucky Bacaw and his Backyard Chicken Broadcast on RadioBoise in Boise, Idaho. The segments are targeted at the newbie urban chicken farmer and do a great job covering all the basic necessities for going from empty backyard to urban chicken haven in a very straight-forward and accessible way. He even covers some basic chicken health issues to take into consideration if you're going to make the plunge.
I really enjoyed listening to Bucky's segments. Moreover, I was amused to see that Bucky recently won an Eglu coop -- like ours -- at the Good Food Now! conference in NYC last December. He'll be talking about the Eglu in episode six. I still can't tell exactly what episode we're on, but as soon as I can get the info, I'll link to it here.
If any Urban Chickens readers have any questions or stories to share with Bucky, please drop him an email at bucky|at|radioboise.org
It'll be great to see more and more folks reached across all kinds of media (blogs, radio, tv, paper) so we get more chickens in backyards across North America!
