Backyard chickens complement vegetable gardening by recycling kitchen scraps, eating pests and weeds, and providing fertilizers. Even though the popularity of micro-flocks in urban and suburban backyards is skyrocketing, many people are still very resistant to allowing their neighbors to keep a small, quiet backyard flock. If the white house were to keep a small flock, it would go a really long way to dispel a lot of the incorrect beliefs.

      This would help normalize the idea of a family in an urban area raising chickens for eggs.

      This would set a great example and would help change the pattern of local governments, HOA, etc creating rules that prevent homeowners from keeping chickens. Given the tough economic times many are facing, seems reasonable to allow individuals to keep chickens. My subdivision will not allow individuals to keep chickens, but allow ducks to roam whereever. Seems contradictory.

      Mrs. Obama has been a leader and an example of physical fitness and healthy habits. This is a natural extension of that.
