raising a chick (and ducks, and a pig, etc.) in Park Slope in the '60's

For fun, read about raising the baby chick that we hoped would lay but learned that it was a rooster early one morning behind our Park Slope brownstone in the 1960's (see 'My Little Town: A Brooklyn Girl's Food Voice' in Gastropolis: Food and New York City )
and the ways the neighbors applauded the morning call...

That cheer you heard a few seconds ago came from my sleep-deprived husband here in NY! The 5 to 8 a.m. rooster-in-the-darkened-bathroom routine has been a little weird for him. Thank you!

Can you email me your address and is 8 a.m. tomorrow okay?

Hi Alice,

Would you be interested in my beautiful 4-month-old Cochin Rooster? He's such a nice boy, hand-fed since he hatched and good to the girls, but he just started crowing and one neighbor is upset. 

He's so regal -- he deserves better than a stew pot. 

I've been bringing him inside every morning at 5 a.m. so he doesn't further aggravate the neighbor, but it's stressful for him and can't go on forever... 

Thanks,

Marty

You would be willing to take them? I could drive them out.

Hello all, 

I have 4 old hens at a garden. They are not laying anymore. Their coop is not ideal, and they don't really have someone spending time with them and letting them out everyday. Someone feeds them and changes their water every day, that's all. 

I want to find somewhere for them to spend their last days.  Ideas? I am willing to drive them far away if needed. 

Thanks!
