After reporting on December 17 about two lost chickens in Nulu, readers wrote in to proclaim their love of urban chickens. It seems the mainstream media may have been listening as CNN (and Wave 3) picked up the story and ran. The piece showcases urban farmers in Old Louisville and Shelby Park. Most of the interviewees appear to be young people taking up the Urban Chicken Movement.
There’s a discussion going on at Louisville History & Issues regarding the image urban chickens bring to Louisville, but as readers repeatedly said earlier, I think this is a major bonus for the city. Urban farming represents a creative approach to urban living that should be fostered in Louisville and it certainly helps to keep Louisville weird.
