A Literal Modern Roost: Chickens in Manhattan

This NY Times article about a Co-op turned chicken coop in Manhattan is a funny and endearing look at a most unusual pair of pets.

The Giovannini family raises two chicks, Chirp and Cheep, into hens in the confines of an apartment. As it turns out, chickens are smarter and more endearing than we thought.

i loved this article, and at the same time thought to myself... there's something unsettling about the fact that with all the money in the world, the greatest pleasure for this little girl is in the simplicity of having a little chicken. she could be having so much more fun if she were just living in the country, no? SHE's the one "cooped up"! :)

i don't know. maybe that's too cynical?

Reminds me of Chandler and Joey and their chick and duck!
