Urban Chickens: Backyard Eggs-and Fun

Record #:
Chapel Hill is revisiting its town ordinances regulating the raising of chickens within its town limits. Urban chicken farming has increased in recent years as many people are aiming to get closer to their food and are fed up with the industrial food system. Many also keep flocks for health, environmental, humane, and educational reasons. Chapel Hill and Carrboro residents talk about the benefits of raising chickens and the problems they have faced trying to do so in city limits.
