Associated Press picks up on Mad City Chickens again

“Madison Alder Marcia Rummel, hopes to change Madison’s 4-year-old chicken ordinance to allow people living in multi-family dwellings to keep chickens. Currently, the law enables only people living in single-family residences to have the fowl.”

The reason given:

“Backyard chickens have become popular in Madison, boosted this year by a documentary on the phenomenon, Mad City Chickens, which debuted at the Madison Film Festival in March.”

The piece was authored by reporter Lynn Welch of the Capital Times, then picked up nationwide by the Associated Press.
