Raising chickens in a Brooklyn backyard is easier than you might think, say those who've done it.
We just heard about the Victory Chicken Corporation, a new start-up based in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, that wants to set up 1,000 chicken coops across the greater NYC area over the next four years. The company will outfit your backyard with the coop pictured (custom-built in Brooklyn), three hens, two months of supplies and a quick training in about one and a half hours for $785. (Hey, it’ll pay for itself in time, after a whole lotta eggs!) You can read more about the company at its website or check out this Edible Manhattan article.
