I'm happy to say that I found a farmer who is willing to sell us some 26-ish week old chickens who are good egg producers for the low-low price of ten bucks each.
I explained the challenge, and asked him if I can wait until the spring when we've fenced in the yard, and he said yes :o)
Woo-hoo! I'll have eggs to trade! (As long as Mark doesn't come eat my chickens.) (Mark, they're still off-limits. No hunting in my yard.)


  1. LOL :o)
    If you're interested in reading the legislation that allows chickens and bees in Cleveland, it's 347.02 and can be found at: http://caselaw.lp.findlaw.com/clevelandcodes/cco_part3_347.html
    Many cities have similar legislation, partly because of a trend toward local food, and partly because people were keeping them illegally anyway.

  2. Chickens out here are expressly banned, although they were non-specific about rabbits...

  3. you could grow them in your walls.

  4. I'm totally jelly. There's nothing I want more than a backyard full of chickens. First I need to get a backyard. However, urban chix farming is encouraged in NYC: http://fourpoundsflour.blogspot.com/2009/07/urban-chickens.html

  5. Yes Mike I could - though in my revisionist version of history, rats were raised for meat. mmmm...
