Raising meat chickens in the city can be a quick and easy way to provide some meat for yourself even in the city. Cornish cross grow quickly, but they are traditionally raised on a grain based diet. Many people prefer pastured meat chickens (myself included). There are heritage breeds that are better at foraging on pastures, but they are not ideal in a very small urban situation like ours. There is a compromise between the two, and that is raising Cornish Cross on pasture. Our last batch of meat chickens spent a lot of time outdoors and I will continue to do so for future batches as well.
