EggsMaine’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.

  1. I think it’s great opportunity for people to become more self sufficient. Raising the chickens also provides a great learning experience for children. The other thing I like about this is you know where the food is coming from. I second your comment Bravo, Portland!
