Western Springs proves pluckier than Lombard

Wagner Farm, Glenview, Illinois

The headline, I promise, will be the sole chicken pun in this post.

Several months ago, at our YoChicago site, we linked to a report that the Village of Lombard had barred residents from raising chickens. One resident opined that the practice was "not fitting in with the Lombard lifestyle."

There had been some doubt about the chicken-friendliness of Western Springs, but that doubt was resolved in favor of chickens, according to a Trib Local report.

Locavores, rejoice. Chickens are now definitively consistent with the Western Springs lifestyle.
