BBC: Belgium Gives Free Chickens to Cut Household Waste

The caption to this photo in the news story says "The scheme seeks to promote new ideas for waste management." The idea of hens involved in a "scheme" just cracks me up. However, I think the folks in Belgium are onto something.

I know that right now Denver (and some other cities in the area) aren't particularly chicken-friendly. However, with a city-wide composting program in the works, could city-wide-hen-promotion really be that far behind?
