I would like to take this opportunity to share the experience that a dear friend (and co-worker to boot) has had over the last many weeks. Thomas' endeavor involves a coop, a backyard and two feathery friends named Sophia and Zsu Zsu.
He is raising Urban Chickens! Check out his blog detailing the trials and tribulations of such an undertaking. He has even been interviewed by a Canadian radio station...really you must check this out.
Anyway, today Thomas enjoyed the fruits of his family's chicken labors: Sophia's first eggs. I can't do the story justice, so you must go see for yourself.
