Can you have chickens in city limits? Learn tips on poultry ordinances, homemade chicken coops, feed storage, and more!

In this episode of Mother Earth News and Friends, Marissa Ames, editorial director for Ogden Publications, shares her experience with raising poultry in all sorts of environments – and how you, too, can find a way to keep some feathered friends of your own even within city limits.

Marissa Ames is editorial director for Ogden Publications and manages MOTHER EARTH NEWS, Grit, Countryside, Goat Journal, Backyard Beekeeping, and Backyard Poultry magazines. Marissa runs a small homestead in Fallon, Nevada, where she focuses on saving and propagating rare breeds of goats and garden vegetables. She and her husband, Russ, travel to Africa where they serve as agricultural advisors for the nonprofit I Am Zambia. She spends her free time eating lunch.
