Everyone writes about backyard chicken. But the frontyard chicken has a much bigger positive impact on creating community in our neighborhood. I experienced this first hand in my Etna house days. Whenever the chickens were in front of the house people (who would otherwise just have walked by) would stop, look, smile, and start a conversation. I had the same experience here at 1917 Chestnut.
