Today I'm continuing on both my Colorado and my urban chickens themes. While I was in Boulder recently my friend Deborah Cantrell of University of Colorado (CU) told me about an effort by CU students to build a better backyard urban chicken coop. Deb and the folks on her cul-de-sac plan to share one of these coops in a kind of neighborhood urban chicken cooperative. I like the idea of this - I don't think I'd have the patience or time to raise chickens on my own, but maybe if I could share the labor (and the fruits) with the neighborhood it would work better. The CU students are working with an organization called Urban Hens and they're hoping to begin selling their coop at the Boulder Farmer's Market which, as farmer's markets go, already has a pretty impressive selection of goods.
