Mother Earth News via The Happy Homesteader had an online article about raising chickens in municipalities and suburbs.
The story discusses how people who want to raise chickens sometimes have to fight for the right. But, in 1918, everyone was encouraged to raise their own chickens! It kind of points out how our culture has changed, doesn't it?
I loved this 1918 poster so much I couldn't help passing the story along. You can read the entire article here.
