A chicken-friendly, fenced back yard in Elmhurst

by Joe Zekas on 10/24/12

The 5-bedroom, 4 ½ bath home at 153 Caroline Ave in Elmhurst is on a 50 x 191.8 foot lot with a deep, fully-fenced back yard. The 10 year-old home is listed for $795,000, and you can tour it in the above video.

Some might consider it a great place to raise chickens – if only Elmhurst allowed them.

Elmhurst is currently weighing the chickens-in-the-yard issue. The pro-chicken cohort, according to a recent Tribune article, incudes Sarah Makinney, spouse of Tom Makinney of Koenig & Strey’s Gracik Makinney Group, which is one of our sponsors.

Tom Makinney has noted the difficulty of refraining from “a good chicken joke” while outlining the pros and cons of back yard chickens, and listing the communities near Elmhurst that allow them.

Chicken puns are welcome in the comments.
