If you missed Wisconsin Public Television's broadcast of Wisconsin Life on Monday, May 5, be sure to click this link to watch their segment on CLUCK the Chicken Store.
You will get to see some of our own chickens cavorting around and leading their chicken-ish lives, but there's a serious message, too. Backyard chicken-keeping isn't just about having an endearing pet who will come when you call. It's a serious connection to the natural world and to the food we eat. We've lost so many of those connections and chickens, believe it or not, are a way to help rebuild them.
Tune in if you have the chance. There's an excellent segment on l'Etoile owner and chef Tory Miller, as well as some other amazing Wisconsin stories.
