We frequently extol the virtues of local food, but nothing is more local than one's own backyard. To wit, in urban settings all across the country, a growing number of city-dwellers young and old are exploring the wonders of raising and farming backyard chickens. Recently, the photographer Todd Parsons scoured the San Francisco Bay Area for evidence of this burgeoning movement. The following photos offer a glimpse at a variety of hens, eggs, and coop architecture, revealing the chicken to be a strangely beautiful bird, and illuminating the deep and powerful connection we can make with our food—especially when it comes from the home.

But they are naked chickens. Why are none of those chickens wearing slacks?

I like those kind of chickens, and there is nothing wrong with partly naked men. :D

The chickens with feathers on their feet are from a variety including Cochin, Silkie, Houdan, Langshan, Faverolle, Brahmas, Sultan.  My latest chickens have feathers so dark they almost look blue.  They are beautiful.  I'll ask my son to take photos tomorrow.

Someday I will have chickens.  Sadly, my current landlord isn't very openminded.  But someday...
