What began as a silent underground movement in cities such as Boston, Massachusetts and Madison, Wisconsin, has winged its way across the country, coming home to roost in unsuspecting locales that include Dripping Springs and surrounding communities.

If you hadn’t guessed, this trend is the “urban chicken” movement and more residents in and around our fair city are enjoying fresh eggs daily, gathered from coops in their backyards.

Unofficial estimates, not counting small farms, are in the neighborhood of one million flocks (not individual chicks or hens) populating backyards around the U.S.; and the number is growing.
