A win for urban hens

On Feb. 1, 2010, the Columbia City Council voted 4-3 to allow Columbia residents to keep up to six backyard hens in a secure shelter, away from neighbors. (Sorry boys, roosters are prohibited.) In light of the new ordinance, Columbia residents flocked to the Columbia Center for Urban Agriculture's coop-building workshop. Watch the slideshow below to see highlights from the session.
