University of California Berkeley, February 18, 2012
In recent years, animal shelters and sanctuaries in urban and suburban areas have seen a dramatic increase in backyard chicken-keeping. As the
popularity of raising backyard flocks in urban areas has grown, farm animal shelters have become inundated with calls to take in unwanted chickens.
Karen Davis discusses the pros and cons of keeping backyard chickens in urban areas, what chickens need for happiness and wellbeing, and suggestions if
you are considering or already have a backyard flock.
