Oshkosh Pushes for Backyard Chickens

Go Oshkosh!  Read the report here.


  1. Hi Kathy~

    I love your enthusiasm about having chickens and hope by now the laws have been changed to where Columbus will allow a small flock for fresh eggs. Just let those against changing taste the huge difference between store bought eggs and the ones your own chickens give you and they ought to be doing all they can to make sure the law allows them.

    I came across your blog this evening as I was looking up various areas of information for Columbus. I moved to Fall River as a new bride when I was 17 years old and moved to Columbus about 1 1/2 years later and lived on Fuller Street and then around the Fountain Prairie area and then my husband was transferred to Massachusetts, but 6 months later we moved back to Columbus and eventually ended up here in Texas, but would love to move back to Wisconsin.

    I wish you all the best!


  2. Thank you for stopping by, Linda! I also appreciate your enthusiasm for good food!



  3. Kathy, I, too, have stumbled across your blog while searching for Columbus info. I was super excited as I have often wondered if Columbus allowed chickens. I live on Dickason Blvd here in Columbus and would be happy to help support this cause! I currently buy my eggs from a friend who has a small farmlet in Marshall and has free range chickens. You can definitely taste difference! You can email me at with any info. Thanks! Amanda
