“Regard It as Just as Desirable to Build a Chicken House as to Build a Cathedral”
St. Louis was mentioned as a city that allows urban chicken farming in this article about an Indiana neighborhood and its chickens. (Thanks to Drudge Report for the link.)
I liked this part:
The urban chicken movement has businesses that sell equipment and offer tips for raising the birds.
“There are even ‘stealth’ chicken coops that look like trash cans,” Stulp said.
Camouflaged coops are an amusing reminder that some activities are better left legal and regulated. If you’re concerned about chickens getting loose and wandering the streets, you’d prefer they be kept in secure enclosures. But if raising chickens is illegal, their owners will try to hide them — sometimes in specially designed hidden coops that are completely functional, but possibly in improvised cages that sacrifice practicality for covertness.
In case you’re wondering, the quote in the title of this entry came from Frank Lloyd Wright.
