Apparently, it’s all the rage. First it was Urban Gardens (which we love) now the new growing trend is Urban Chickens. Recently I saw a piece on The Today Show (clip below) about such chickens (you can take the Paddy out of Ireland but……) living in Urban NY and this got me wondering where else Urban Chickens are hatching. My missus’ bff, Grace (I think I’m too old to use the term bff but omg whatev) lives in Maui and says chickens are like stray dogs there, roaming where they please. I know Maui isn’t exactly a metropolis but she does live in a city-like community vs. a plantation! Then I saw a blog where a couple is raising chickens for fresh eggs in their back yard in Culver City, CA (Los Angeles basically). So then I Googled ‘Urban Chickens’ and yep, you guessed it. It’s official: we’ve found a trend!
Now, if only I had enough space for my own chickens because I have been known to delve into the odd dozen egg whites a day…..on occasion. Can you imagine all the money I’d be saving on organic eggs?! Not sure I’d want Chinese or pizza tasting chickens though! (Watch the video below and you’ll understand what I mean!)
Do you have or know of someone who has Urban Chickens? Looks like Inner city chicks have taken on a new meaning!
