Saw a spike in traffic to this blog, and I was more than happy to discover a rather detailed blogpost/report on csmonitor.com's Bright Green blog by Eoin O'Carroll about the Illicit urban chicken movement growing in US (he's crafted a very good post with lots of good resources linked throughout).
So why the traffic coming here? The content of my publicly posting instructions for our chicken-sitters last summer was used to illustrate just what's involved in keeping urban chickens. Another great example of why it's sometimes better to post innocuous content like this where everyone can see instead of going with the traditional leave-a-printed-copy-on-the-counter approach.
For those of you new here to UrbanChickens.net, welcome! I've been chronicling our own adventures in raising chickens in our backyard in hopes the information is more readily at hand for others wanting to join the urban chicken movement. If you can't find what you're looking for, don't hesitate to ask a question in the comments and we'll answer as best we can.
We're glad to have you here!
