Urban chicken controversy in Montana

Missoulachick-1 There's a battle raging in Missoula, Montana over "urban chickens." One one side are people who want to raise their own food and bring a little bit of farm life into the city. On the other are those who say the birds are noisy, unhealthy, and stink. New West Network's Anne Medley and Jonathan Stumpf created a wonderful video documenting the controversy. The piece has the feel of spoof, but it's no joke.
