It seems that more and more city dwellers and people living in suburban neighborhoods are learning the joy of keeping chickens.  And it's not just for the fresh eggs; chickens make very good pets, and can be both affectionate and highly entertaining.  This website has all sorts of great information, including laws and ordinances,  for those interested in keeping a couple of hens in the city.
