While driving down Mandela Parkway I spied this cool chicken coop with quite a variety of chickens. The picture is not as sharp as it could be because it was dusk and I had to shoot over a cyclone fence. Urban farms are growing in Oakland and right now chickens are allowed but not roosters. Funny, I could swear I've heard them crow in several spots around town. Must be my imagination. There's lots of debate about what other animals should be allowed and what should be guidelines for butchering. Linked to ABC Wednesday.
