Via The Washington Post: “The Silicon Valley elite’s latest status symbol: Chickens.”

Raising chickens isn’t shocking. Folks do it everywhere, particularly when they’re trying to perform “back-to-the-land” and “sustainable” lifestyles in the face of middle class, suburban malaise. But the subheader on this story points to how this might be a different sort of trend: “Their pampered birds wear diapers and have personal chefs – but lay the finest eggs tech money can buy.”

The birds, the story says, are considered members of the family and can live up to 20 years. No word if they’re trained like pigeons.
