Chicago now has its first “Chicken Consultant.”

Her name is Jennifer Murtoff. She travels across the city visiting chicken coops and providing advice to owners to ensure that they have the healthiest, happiest chickens possible.

Murtoff stopped by WGN Morning News to share tips on raising urban chickens of our very own. Before you invest in chickens, you should:

  • Consider your schedule
  • Know chickens eat twice a day
  • Build a quality coop
  • Plan for long term since chickens live 10 years
