In the news this week, Northeast PA was rated as the most unhappy place to be in the United States. I can’t help but to think it’s due to the restrictive rules of raising chickens in these here parts. In writing this blog post, I found myself asking which came first the chicken or the outrage.
Have you ever eaten farm fresh chicken eggs? They’re delicious! Eggs in general are a great source of protein and vitamin D and when consumed in moderation do not pose a threat to your cholesterol, but rather help to keep your good cholesterol at a healthy level. Eggs are all-natural and provide one of the highest quality proteins of any food available.
Wouldn’t it be great to just pop on out to the coop and collect a few of these healthy little buggers from your very own chickens? Unfortunately, due to an ordinance that is in need of revision, Luzerne County residents don’t have that privilege. Urban and suburban areas in hundreds of cities allow backyard chickens as part of promoting healthy eating and lifestyle choices. Many see it as being along the same lines as backyard gardening. I say, let them have chickens!
With the influx in the chicken population you can be darned certain that there will be fowl play. Just ask the “Chicken Wing Bandit”.
Officers said they tried to speak with Cebula, but he appeared highly intoxicated and told them he was “the Chicken Wing Bandit,”
Officials speculate that allowing chickens to roam the streets will cause violent rioting among residents in the region….oh wait….IT’S ALREADY HAPPENING. RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!
Scranton police arrested a man and woman Wednesday for fighting on a street corner, though the man implicated a chicken for causing his injuries.
Keep the bloody racket down, this is bloody chickentown.
That’s all I have to crow about for the moment. Enough with the groans, there’s no need to be cocky.
