Menus in the Movies looks at backyard poultry in “Mad City Chickens”

May 11, 2012
by Susan Rubin

The Chappaqua Library will screen Mad City Chickens on Friday, May 11, at 7:00 p.m., as part of its Menus in the Movies series, led by food author and film buff Carol Durst.  Homemade (non-chicken) desserts and discussion—about backyard chickens—follow.

This film is a sometimes serious, sometimes whimsical look at the people who keep urban chickens in their backyards.

Backyard chicken expert Melina Brown will be on hand along with a live chicken or two!  Melina heads up the Westchester/Southern CT Backyard Poultry Meetup Group and is quite an authority about all issues relating to chickens.

I’ll be there representing the Food & Agricultural Task Force of the town’s Sustainability Advisory Board, and we’ll be talking about the possibilities for chickens here in Chappaqua.  This will be a fun and interesting discussion, great for all ages.
