Chickens in NYC and Oakland ...

I got a kick out of this segment on NPR today. It is about how city folks are, increasingly, keeping chickens in urban locales -- as pets, ready suppliers of eggs, and both. Particularly rich was the quote by one resident of Park Slope, Brooklyn, who commented on his association of chickens with "god-forsaken places in upstate" New York.

So now, in contrast to the exurban phenomenon that takes the city to the country, the country is coming to the city?
