NY Times Article - When the Problems Come Home to Roost

There was an article in the Times on the 22nd about people who are joining the local food movement and getting chickens. Unfortunately they find out that they don't want the responsibility and/or problems that can come with caring for chickens and they dump them off at animal shelters.

If anyone is considering getting chickens, please read this article and my blog post entitled "why not to get chickens", which points out some of the downsides of chicken owning. I LOVE keeping chickens, but it is work and I think it's important to understand what you are getting yourself into before you adopt an animal. Also check Pet Finder to see if there are any chickens in your area that need a home.
