They probably got sick and tired of changing the diapers (picture/article link)
I received an e-mail from a reporter at The Daily Caller yesterday asking for my thoughts concerning the problem of abandoned chickens in urban areas, as reported in This Article.
I replied to the query, and my solution to this problem made it into today's article at The Daily Caller. Here's the link: Urban Chickens Increasingly Abandoned by Hipster Owners.
My solution is, I think, pretty obvious to any "rural blogger" such as myself. And the whole matter is actually kind of comical.
My only gripe with the article is the comment that "A nationwide salmonella outbreak in 2012 was spread in part by chickens raised in backyard coops." I don't believe that at all.
