Underground Chickens

In many cities across the U.S., it’s against the law to keep chickens in your backyard.

But that doesn’t stop the chicken-keepers in this video.

“I wouldn’t say we’re hiding them,” said one Nashville, Tennessee, resident. “We’re just not publicizing them.”

Another Nashville keeper of backyard chickens said the city issued her a citation for having three chickens in her yard. The city gave her several days to remove them. So she did. She sent them to a nearby neighbor’s house. Meanwhile, she built a privacy fence—so she could bring the chickens back home.
