What neighborhood of NYC do you (or would you like to) keep chickens in?

Williamsburg, Brooklym

Where do you keep chickens or where do you plan to keep chickens? For example: in a community garden, an urban farm, a school garden, a backyard, etc.

I would love to help out in a local cooperative. Maybe get 2 or three hens for my backyard in the spring.

Do you keep chickens now or would you like to start keeping chickens? Please explain your chicken situation!

I love birds, I love eggs, and I have a backyard garden. Before starting I want to make sure I will stay committed, or know what to do with my birds if I am not able to. Want to know how dangerous the local feral cats are, etc. I learned everything I know about gardening thru the internet and trial and error, but don't want to dive into raising animals without some hands on experience first. I'm thinking just two or three chickens eventually though, assuming that would be enough companionship for them to be happy.


Hoping to get to know more about hen raising by helping out with someone else's. I've always loved birds, wild and as pets. Give me a shout if you need a hand, or if you wouldn't mind a one time visit, anywhere in the NYC area.
