Urban Chickens

I am doing a project on Urban Chickens. In particular ordinances, zoning laws and health impacts. Here is a fun video from Missoula regarding their chicken liberalization. It has been a year and a half since they passed their law, and there have been few complaints or problems. Many have said that it actually brought neighbors closer together by sharing eggs and bringing children by to see the hens. Imagine that.

Asheville, North Carolina just passed changes to its animal control ordinance to allow urban chickens. Check it out here:

Also, the Asheville City Chicken website:

We're pretty excited about the changes!
