I "met" Trace through the CFSA local food challenge, and check in on his blog Cricket Bread every once in a while. He's living the life I'd like to live I'm striving towards.
It's a life free from partisan politics, but completely political. One where dollars speak philosophically and compassion is a way of living, rather than the mask of someone running for office.
Anyway, when I saw Be Your Own Hero in his flickr stream, I thought, "That's exactly what the world needs more of!"

The world also needs more urban chickens. . . (which has less to do with Trace, and more to do with my own hankerings).

Your post is my dream! I love the McMurry Chicken catalog like other people covet CB2. My husband won't let me, but I've got my eye on a little coop full of clucky jerky birds. Grew up with the sweetest hens and haven't forgot it. Love the post - thanks!

Speaking as a girl who grew up city, it's been about two years since I convinced my husband I needed chickens and we got our first chicks. I really didn't think I would enjoy them as much as I do, but they are fabulous! We are in rural suburbia and have four hens. I have to keep myself in check or I will keep getting more! Fresh eggs are the best!
