MCC Gets Mention in Milwaukee Journal

The Mad City Chickens documentary received a mention in a recent article from the Milwaukee Journal. While it is currently illegal for residents of Milwaukee to keep backyard poultry, that didn't stop folks at the Urban Ecology Center from holding a class last Monday night on how to raise city chickens. Over 100 people showed up.

Mad City Chickens Returns to Baraboo Today!

Our Mad City Chickens documentary plays in Baraboo, Wisconsin today at the UW's Campus Theatre. The screening, sponsored by the Wisconsin Humanities Council, is part of a larger event called Wisconsin: Making It Home. The focus is to get folks thinking about their food supply and to consider the idea of keeping chickens in the backyard.

There will be a post-film discussion with the audience lead by two teenage girls, Maia and Lydia. They are the two who spearheaded the movement last year in Baraboo to make backyard chickens legal. Their efforts were successful!
