Whether it's trying to save money or live healthier, urban chicken coops are becoming more popular.
It's estimated there are 100 families in Indianapolis with a chicken coop in their backyard and now the idea is expanding to schools.
"I don't know who could be more excited than me. I was just so excited that we were getting chickens,” said Emmett Williams, 4th-grader.
Tuesday, Nap Town Chickens set up a coop at the Center for Inquiry School #2 on New Jersey.
"I'm not trying to get these kids into farming. That's not our business here. Our business is to teach them where an egg comes from.
“It also teaches responsibility taking care of the chickens. And then again, not everything we throw away is waste and it can be fed to the chickens," said Andrew Brake, Nap Town Chickens.
Local businesses are footing the bill for the chickens, food, water and the coop but the students will be responsible for taking care of the animals.
Right now, nine schools will get a chicken coop and there are plans to expand the program to elementary, middle and high schools across the city.
That's not a concern to the students, though, they just want to make the chickens feel at home.
"I think they're going to like it. They have a pretty nice cage over there," said Madelyn Altom, 4th-grader.
According to Animal Care and Control, urban chicken coops are legal in Marion County as long as the owner takes proper care of the animals. There also isn't a limit on how many chickens families can have, but your neighbors might have an issue.
