Chicken Barons

At the Hobart cohousing development there were designated “chicken barons.”

What this means is that a single family was in charge of taking care of the chickens – everything from feeding them to gathering the eggs.

Residents are encouraged to bring vegetable matter to feed to the chickens, and the chicken barons then sell the eggs to the residents.

What a cool system!
