Two young teens, Maia, 14 and Lydia, 13, are leading the citizens of Baraboo, Wisconsin ever closer to finally getting their backyard chickens. Last night, they hosted a public screening of the Mad City Chickens documentary to a crowd of over 60 enthusiastic supporters.
It’s all stemming from this green and sustainable movement that’s going across the whole country, and even the whole world, right now, Maia said. Allowing residents the opportunity to raise small flocks of chickens for healthy food and local food goes hand in hand with us being an eco-muncipality.
We have now been gathering lots of community support through displays, petitions, etc. and are scheduled to go back before the council on June 2.
Keep up the good work Maia and Lydia! You’re a shining example for the many others wanting to bring urban chickens back to their communities.
