Mike Nowak Talks Chickens

Mike Nowak, Chicago’s premiere urban gardening radio host, has picked up the chicken trend here in Chicago. His November 14, 2010, radio show featured Martha Boyd with Angelic Organics Learning Center.

Mike thinks chickens are funny – well, a friend told me that any word with a “k” in it sounds funny – so when I tell folks I’m an urban chicken consultant, to prevent myself from chuckling, I just remember that words with a “k” in them sound funny!

Check out Mike’s web page for the urban chicken links and the podcast! If you want to skip to the urban chicken bit, it begins at around 1:42.
