Backyard Chickens on CNN

http://ireport.cnn.com/docs/DOC-774772?hpt=hp_bn1

Click on the link above for a new report on CNN about the backyard hen movement, this time focusing on Winter Park, Florida.

Funny how the comments go, whether it’s on CNN.com or BillingsGazette.com… naysayers are abusive and anonymous, while the other folks have their photos posted with their account, aren’t cursing to make their point, and sound reasonable. Makes you wonder. 🙂

    I’m waiting impatiently to see if this passes. I would much rather have my own chickens and know that they are treated wonderfully and put companies like this http://news.yahoo.com/pennsylvania-egg-factory-accused-animal-cruelty-filth-135453931–abc-news-topstories.html out of business!!

    Does anyone have an idea about a big city newsstation or paper that would find it interesting that “redneck” Billings, Montana is afraid of legalizing urban hens? I think we could find a paper that would pick that up. The city council wants to draw people here, to Billings, so it might spur a little action when it gets picked up “outside of town,”
    Maybe one of the first “big” cities–they would be proud of their trailblazing…Does anyone know which cities went first?
