City Chickens / by Justin Merriman

Shelly Danko+Day holds "Scrappy" a rooster that lives in her Highland Park backyard along with four hens. Danko+Day, who has had the chickens for over a year and a half, keeps the chickens as pets and for the eggs they produce. More and more city dwellers and suburbanites, including those in the Pittsburgh area, are raising chickens as pets and food-producers. It's legal in the city of Pittsburgh to keep up to five chickens.
