coming home to roost

The ancestral hometown is re-thinking its opposition to chickens.  The guy who wrote the article has a problem with my ancestors:

Opening the city’s doors to chicken coops seemed like a step back to a time when folks just off of the boat, and one step from starvation, kept hens to put eggs on the table.

That’s a bit negative, don’t you think?  Would it have been better if they stepped off the boat and starved instead?  Jerk.
