The following is from chicken author Christine Heinrichs who did a Q&A after last night's Santa Barbara screening:
What a delight to be greeted by over 200 enthusiastic chicken lovers! They came to view Mad City Chickens, and then talk about chickens. Katherine Anderson, local farmer who raises chickens and turkeys, and Loren Luyendyk, a carpenter who builds chicken coops, also answered questions.
The Santa Barbara Library’s Faulkner Gallery is a beautiful room. People squeezed in, some sitting on the floor. They were all good humored and eager to get help with their chicken questions and willing to help others.
I’ve seen the movie several times now. It’s a Feel Good movie as well as documenting the backyard chicken situation and the legal particulars of Madison, Wisconsin. Watching it with an appreciative audience makes it all the more enjoyable.
