As I was driving over to the Joe Matos' cheese factory this morning, I saw a hand lettered sign, clearly the advertising of a diversified cottage industry.
Among the items listed were "chicken coups."
I knew the backyard hen movement had gone too far. Now they are organized and taking over suburbia. Shades of my second favorite barnyard movie, Chicken Run.
With all the farm bill tussles and news or lack of it from Rio 20 years later I needed this (presumably) unintentional humor. It didn't hurt to see a brand new Holstein calf as I drove by Beretta's dairy (Wallaby Organic Yogurt), too.
