Chickens at the Majewski hen house are let out of  the coop for a time, giving them freedom to roam  and eat. Deb Majewski said catching them once  they’ve been out is a hard job. (Photos by  Brittney Ermon/H-F Chronicle) 

They can be found every day in stores and freezers in Homewood and are a common addition to dinner plates.And surprisingly, some local residents also have them in their backyards.
