Chicago’s Urban Chicken Movement Reaches Michigan Avenue


The urban chicken movement is really picking up speed here in Chicago, and this chic (chick?) new trend has reached trendy and cultured Michigan Avenue: the Chicago Cultural Center at 78 E. Randolph dedicated an exhibit to urban avian agriculture this summer.

There were pictures of Chicago’s feathered residents, a full-size coop, information and resources on raising chickens, and educational displays about hens and eggs. Martha Boyd from Angelic Organics Learning Center was instrumental in creating the exhibit, and chicken owners from around town contributed pictures of their birds and coops.

  1. Thanks for the post Jennifer. I assisted Martha with the exhibit and I think it turned out famously! A big thanks to Nathan Mason, Director of Special Projects… he invited us into the exhibit.

    I have been following your blog for awhile and I appreciate it!
