victories on chicken laws across the country

2 02 2010

Columbia, MO just passed a law to legalize urban chicken keeping. Below is a good excerpt from the article:

Ann Koenig, a mother of two, supported the ordinance not only because of the local food aspect, she said, but also because her children look forward to raising chickens.

Koenig discussed the learning process of selecting breeds, designing a coop and building it as a family.

“It seems just priceless,” Koenig said.

Adam Saunders, with the Columbia Center for Urban Agriculture, spoke in support of the local food movement in Columbia.

“There are many benefits these children will receive by seeing where their food comes from,” Saunders said.
