Judy DeHaas never thought she'd spend her mornings gathering eggs. As a photojournalist for the Denver Post, the Denver resident hatched an unexpected passion for backyard chicken farming when she met a local urban homesteading guru, Sundari Kraft of Heirloom Gardens. Kraft's multi-plot urban farm cleaves close to local terroir, narrowing its focus from Community Supported Agriculture to Neighborhood Supported Agriculture, reasoning that shareholders should be able to walk - not drive - to pick up their allotment of food.

Visiting Kraft's home to work on a story, DeHaas was struck by the lack of fuss and mess she'd been led to associate with urban chicken faming. "You're inundated with propaganda about what you have to have to farm eggs, " she says. "It was amazing how easy it was. Not out of control at all. You just have to feed them good food and keep them warm. You don't have to have a rooster, and you don't have to walk them like dogs."
