Maine’s largest city OKs backyard chickens
Boston.com, February 19, 2009
Maine’s largest city has become the latest municipality in the state to allow residents to keep chickens in their backyards.
Portland officials said the council received 150 e-mails, the most it’s ever received on any issue, which came up as the recession has more people interested in locally grown food.
It’s a fantastic idea. Cut out the middle-man and get fresh eggs and meat while helping the environment by producing locally. Bravo, Portland.
