Hankering for fresh eggs? Well, now folks living in Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti can now enjoy the company of up to four chickens and all the eggs those lovely ladies will deliver. (Sorry, no roosters.)

Not sure where to start? Well, join us this Saturday, March 20th for A-maizing Chickens! to learn the basics about getting, keeping, supporting, and enjoying hens in an urban environment. Come on out to the Thomason Family Farm where Peter Thomason will share his knowledge and experience in fowl play.

I'd be interested in where I can buy some of these local chickens' eggs. I don't need enough to have my own chickens, but I like local eggs from happy chickens.

Great idea, Monica! I'll see what I can find out and let you know. Meanwhile, anyone out there know anything about assorted options for Ann Arbor urban eggs?

Please note that the chicken in the above photo is an ISA Brown, not Asa Brown. Thanks to the reader for letting us know!
