Chickens for the White House Garden?

I'm sure many of you have heard about the 1,100 square foot organic vegetable garden that Michelle Obama had planted on the White House lawn. If you haven't yet heard, you can read the New York Times article about the garden. You can also sign a petition to thank Michelle for establishing the garden.

Now some chicken lovers are taking it to the next level. The Society for Preservation of Poultry Antiquities has offered to establish a small flock of chickens alongside the White House garden. Chickens are a perfect accompaniment to a garden, since -- in addition to providing healthy eggs -- they can eat garden waste and produce wonderful organic fertilizer for the garden.
