The rich and famous of San Francisco are falling head over heels for a new status symbol — pet chickens.  Some Bay Area chicken-lovers are spending as much as $400 for a chicken — and nearly $20,000 for high-tech homes to house their pet birds.  The Washington Post reports one poultry paradise is constructed from sustainable red pine and comes equipped with solar panels. It’s called the “Range Rover of chicken cribs.”  And if you think that’s a bit odd — some feathered foul have their own personal chefs — and there are reports that locals have commenced to clothing their chickens in diapers.  So it’s possible that somewhere on Nob Hill — a pampered bird is clucking around the yard wearing a pair of Huggies.
