Local group supports chickens in the city

As food prices rise, a new scene is unveiled in America's backyards. People are trying to live life more sustainably, says Ark-La-Tex resident Sarah Touchstone, so they're producing more of their own food. For Touchstone, that means raising chickens.

She has four in her backyard, a few miles outside Shreveport's city limits. She says that's a good thing, because it's against city ordinances to raise hens at home. Now a local group called "Shreveport City Chickens" is trying to change that.
