The Urban Chicken
In addition to hearing the normal barks and meows of your neighborhood pets, you may also hear the exotic calls of the Asian Jungle Fowl, a.k.a., the chicken. Small urban poultry operations are rapidly increasing in popularity. These beautiful birds can multitask, too. They produce delicious eggs, provide chemical-free insect control, alert you with a wake-up call, make natural fertilizer for gardens and when socialized are lovely pets. Now University Animal Hospital associate Dr. Colleen Crozier will be providing poultry medical care as a new service. For appointments or coop calls, contact 336-270-1003.
