The Rundown: Nick Rupiper has raised chickens in Sonoma Valley for the last six years and will be teaching city dwellers all about his labor of love. Backyard flocks are increasingly common among folks wanting more control over what they eat -- or maybe a different kind of pet.

Learn about San Francisco's rules and regulations on keeping chickens in the city, how to pick the right flock, their basic needs, and how to build a chicken coop. Rupiper is raising 1,800 chickens for meat and eggs on his private farm and has yet to find a good reason not to build a backyard flock.
