See Yesterday's Article From the Post on Chickens!

Read yesterday's Post Dispatch article on backyard chicken keeping - link inlcuded. Also, join our local backyard chicken meetup group.

Leah Thorsen, St. Louis Post Dispatch reporter, contacted the co-organizers of our local backyard chicken meetup list to do an article on keeping chickens. 

She chose to interview and send a photographer to my fellow co-organizer, Guy Niere, to interview him on his backyard flock of chickens.  This is a very well written article and interesting to read.

Here it is:

Chickens are gaining a foothold in St. Louis area

How many of you have backyard chickens?  Are you on our local backyard chicken meetup list?  It is a great collective group of people, and we do really fun things, such as coop tours, backyard garden tours, DVD viewings, lectures, etc. Consider joining, and let us know that you heard about us here - we will also be asking you for your zip code. This is so that as we plan tours, we can collect homes that are near each other - we had a sustainable backyard tour where our houses were way too spread apart, and we like to make it as educational of a day as possible. On the meetup site, you will see, and be able to RSVP for, our upcoming summer events.

Here is the link to join:


Hope to see you there!
