Farm-fresh eggs have surfaced in the heart of the city. You can find them at 33rd and Webster.
The chicken coop in Griffin park is home to approximately two dozen chickens that live there.
The chickens produce farm-fresh eggs. You can buy a dozen for $5. They are a little different in color but they taste great.
The eggs and the chickens belong to Megan Sperry who heads up Big Muddy Urban Farms.
Meagan said, “Some of the neighbors were surprised at first but they love them. We have a lot of visitors. People walk by and take pictures of them like on Instagram and stuff and so they’re pretty popular around here.”
The egg enterprise did require a city permit. Other than that, it’s just Meagan and the chickens.
Some neighbors say they like the birds. It gives the neighborhood something to look at other than an empty lot.
