Calling all East Bay urban chicken farmers

If you live in the East Bay region of the San Francisco Bay Area here in California, please consider saying yes to this filming request from Carol:
I'm working on a short piece for a project on people who keep chickens for food or as pets here in the Bay Area, especially in more urbanized areas.

So I'm looking for folks willing to let me film them talking about their experiences keeping chickens. And I'd really love to get some footage of someone sitting down to an egg breakfast, fresh from their backyard!
Are you interested in helping her out? Drop her an email at and tell her sent you!

What a great idea. We are currently trying to get an ordinance passed in Longmont, CO to allow backyard hens, but there are many in the city who are very much opposed to it. If you happen to hear that this film has been completed in the near future, could you please let me know? Our city council is voting on the ordinance in mid December, but it'd be great to have something like this to show on the local public channel before then.

By the way, my friend and I just started a blog devoted to the chicken ordinance. We're still trying to build content before we tell the world about it. Here's what we have so far: I'm working on a FAQ for it and we also are getting some local experts to chime in.

Thanks much. :)
