Fresh Chicken

Christina House / Los Angeles Times

For the last couple of months I've had a copy of the Urban Homesteader by
Erik Knutzen and Kelly Coyne in my knapsack for subway reading.

It's great and constantly inspiring, especially to someone like me who loves the city but wishes he could do things like, have chickens.

The LA Times just did this article on the authors, who have recently bought some chickens for their suburban LA home.

The article is titled: Chickens as Pets: City Living with a Farm Feeling.

Can chicken's be pets? And doesn't farm yard feel sort of imply a nice plump roast chicken somewhere along the way?

It's a farm animal, they provide us eggs and meat and we provide them (in an ideal situation) with a nice place to grow up, where they are allowed to do all their chicken things.

Now, if you're a lucky chicken who gets to live in LA you can have an
architecturally designed coop, all the scraps you can eat and grow gray.

Some birds have all the luck.
