Maybe so… maybe not. Don’t rush out just yet to buy a chicken coop for your back patio. The question of whether we can raise domesticated chickens in DC as a hedge against total economic meltdown is not settled yet.

I ran across this headline today at in shaw (an historically gentrified blog): “Chickens in the City.”

Well. What did this mean? What chickens? Chickens in Washington? Has chicken farming become a problem that is bedeviling some Advisory Neighborhood Commission? Is this an issue pitting newly arrived country people against urban sophisticates?
