You can own chickens in Chicago...did you know that? I often have dreams about having a farm when we Blue's are old and grey. (Jamie does not share in my vision...yet....) We could get a jump on things now and start every morning with some fresh eggs, laid by our own chickens. With a chicken coop as lovely as this- maybe my argument could find some footing.
(I was going to say something like don't bawk at my idea, but then I decided against it.)
