chickens are pretty chill

okay, so chickens are a current obsession of mine. i love this video, which is about a "controversial urban chicken ordinance" before the city council of missoula, montana. it's kind of a quietly brilliant piece of filmmaking, actually. and it's funny. i like the guy who talks about how chickens are noisy and have an "aroma," and also, "people usually move to town to get away from farm animals." also, the kid who says, "my neighbor has some chickens, and they're pretty chill."

That is the funniest thing I've seen in awhile. I live about 100 miles north of Missoula and am not surprised that chickens would create controversy there.

Now this is why I read your blog!!! Without your guidance, I would have missed this wonderful story, and I'm going to show it to my aunt Julie, who comes from Missoula. Merci mille fois!

that's lovely!! i love the kid who says, "my neighbor has some chickens, and they're pretty chill." i don't know about all of y'all, but i most definitely moved to portland to get away from farm animals.

Darn right they have an aroma :)

Too funny! Who would have thought that chickens are "chill"?

I love this! I too think chickens are pretty chill, but have yet to find the right words to express it, brilliant!
