City Chickens

City chickens (not to be confused with the timid students below)

Reading the above article, and seeing how these students interacted with the animals at Goat Lady Dairy, brings up many topics for reflection. Is it important that we know where our food comes from and what kind of life it leads? Are there aspects of our humanity that are influenced by out interactions with other species? Why are some animals pets, and others snacks(or both); and why does this vary across cultures?

This being said, I am glad to see that Greensboro has become more lenient in its urban chicken / bee regulations. I am excited about the prospect of having a few of my own, but need a yard first.
