There is a great special report all about keeping chickens in the city at Alabama.com! It seems that Mobile, Alabama is a hospitable place for chickens.
As for me, in Frederick, Maryland, it seems that I've run out of steam to pull together a presentation for the city council. If I had a group of folks to work with, things would be easier. Between finishing up my MA, opening an art center and working on the Eat Local Challenge, I'm swamped. The chicks might have to wait until spring.
