Description

Episode 26 of RICHES Podcast Documentaries: The Oviedo Chickens. RICHES Podcast Documentaries are short form narrative documentaries that explore Central Florida history and are locally produced. These podcasts can involve the participation or cooperation of local area partners.

Episode 26 explores the history of Oviedo, Florida, as it evolved from a rural community to suburbs. The podcast also features Downtown Oviedo's population of free-range chickens. Settlers brought chickens to Solary's Wharf, the south shore of Lake Jesup, around 1875. Many settlers grew a variety of crops, especially celery, and raised livestock. Despite rapid growth in more recent decades, many Oviedo residents yearn to maintain the small-town aura. Around 1994, a lone chicken appeared on Geneva Drive. A rooster was also seen, and within a few weeks, baby chickens appeared. The Oviedo Chickens have become popular in Oviedo and the surrounding areas, with entrepreneurs designing "I Break for Oviedo Chickens" bumper stickers and various t-shirts.

Abstract

Chickens on the city streets! Downtown Oviedo’s population of free-range chickens is a sight to behold, and their history can tell us something about how rural communities adapt to suburbanization. Josh Petitt interviews several residents of Oviedo, including business owners in the downtown area where the chickens roam, to get the story of Oviedo’s feathery residents.
