Chickens Mathilda, left, and Nugget in their pen clucking softly in the backyard, Tuesday, June 30, 2009 in Naperville. Victor Michael and his wife Rachael, rear, have just started raising chickens in their Naperville backyard, two hens and two chicks. They have the fowl for the eggs, a hobby, pets and manure, said Victor. Naperville does not have regulations against raising chickens. Names are cq. (Chuck Berman\Chicago Tribune)
