Portland (and West Coast) Chickens Rule!

chickensIn Portland, it’s easy to feel like chickens are taking over. As it turns out, they (sort of) are!

Real estate website Redfin recently declared the five best cities to be a chicken, and it’s no surprise that they rated Portland King Of The Coop. What makes us special? Our DIY ethos, our accommodating zoning code, and our enduring love for all things local — especially eggs.

Filling out the top-five list are three Californian cities (Venture, San Diego, and Sacramento) and, of course, our frenemies up in Seattle.

So why did the chicken cross the road? To hitch a ride to the West Coast.
