CLUCK featured on WFLA News Channel 8 and WWSB ABC 7

Channel 8 reporter Jackie Barron interviews CLUCK spokesperson Jono Miller in this video segment. The chickens first seen in this video are upset and alarmed for some reason (probably because the videographer with a camera and possibly lights was in their coop) and don't reflect average or normal chicken sound volumes.

The Bradenton chickens are feral bantams -- one of the flightiest breeds and probably not a great urban chicken choice.  If you are considering chickens, please do your homework, and take a "Chickens 101" class. The "Are you ready for backyard chickens?" quiz under the blog header may help you decide if you are a good candidate to keep chickens.

CLUCK spokesman Jono Miller and local chicken-keeper Megan Jourdan were interviewed by Reporter Jennifer Schwan the day before and appeared on both the 6:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. newscasts. The pre-hearing WWSB video is here. The hearing-related WWSB video is here.

Now that the city of Sarasota has approved a 4 hen limit within the city,
will the county of Sarasota do the same?
I have two grandsons, ages 10 and twelve who would love to raise 4 hens. We live in the Nokomis area.
