Just a quick follow up to Chad Emerson's post about urban farming; the sub-issue of urban chickens. There's a fun article in a recent New Yorker magazine about raising chickens in an urban environment. The author briefly discusses the regulatory implications of raising chickens in a residential neighborhood. This has also been a hot issue here in Athens, Georgia. Last year a local couple got crossways with the city over chickens they were keeping in their backyard. As of this date, debate continues over whether to amend local ordinances to allow chickens in in-town neighborhoods.
