Two quick posts this morning. First, I stumbled upon the Go Local Challenge. Perfect encouragement for me this summer!
Second, I came across this exciting new publication:
Now if only the Skeptic would give in to those chickens. Or maybe we need to move to St. Paul. Apparently you can have one goat in St. Paul.

I need to see if chickens are allowed in the suburb I where I live. I’ve been trying to convince my husband for a couple of years to take on some chickens. I wonder what the neighbors would say?
We had chickens when I was growing up. I miss those eggs!
Chickens are allowed in Minneapolis. If you want to keep the goodwill of your neighbors do not get a rooster.
We found out the hard way back in my youth in Denver that the neighbors’ hens also crow – every time the light on the garage went on.
We had a goat for about a month when I was a youngster growing up on the farm. The goat was great at getting out of any enclosure. She’d then go stand on the roof of the nearest vehicle.
A goat? I had no idea… but after reading Chris’ comment, I think I’ll pass! : )
We can have any combination of animals up to 20 within city limits. Including goats. 😀
I think they are REALLY good groundskeepers though! It would at least give the beagles something to do at my house other than herd each other.
I think chickens would be a fun addition! You could have the kids take care of them and pick up eggs and… well… all sorts of stuff!
I live in a condo, so no chickens here, but I do have some veggies growing on the deck!
Hmm, I might have to take on the local challenge for the summer. Thanks for the links!
Hmmm, chickens is an intriguing idea, but then I think we’d have to get rid of our squirrel-chasing hound dog, and that would be too sad. So I guess no chickens for us. Glad you’ve found the Go Local challenge, too…I’m looking forward to the Midtown market opening-up on Tuesday evenings starting in July. It’s just a hop-skip-and-jump away from us!
you definitely need chickens!
