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

We'd like to support chicken flocks and people looking for fresh neighborhood eggs throughout NYC.

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.

We keep chickens in our backyard outside of the city, but are looking to help others set up flocks wherever they can find the space.

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

We try to keep a flock of between 6 & 12 birds, just enough to feed ourselves and a couple of friends and family members. Right now we've got 2 Ameraucanas, 1 Australorp, 1 Barnevelder and 4 Moyer's Brown Layers. We keep them in an 18 x 24 pen, but let them out every day to pasture in the yard, where they forage to supplement their their organic feed.


We've been keeping chickens since 2008 and built to manage our flock, share pictures, eggs and stats with our friends and family. Hope you'll find it fun and useful as well - even if you're just looking for fresh local eggs!
