Day 10

Street chickens

January 9th, 2012

I must have crossed paths with about three dozen chickens today, in four different locations across the South Bronx. Some were enclosed in a community garden, while others were just wandering freely in the streets. I've seen chickens in NYC before, but never with this kind of regularity!

  2. Dorinda from Mentor, Oh. says:

    Now that’s different. Why are there chickens/roosters running the streets? Do they have “turf wars” too?

    • RAYMOND in ALABAMA says:

      They must be having Rooster Fights close by. The Grey Rooster looks to be about 3/4’s Game Rooster. Did anyone

      see the Game of Games last night. I got to give all of you a big Roll Tide, I’m so proud of ALABAMA. I come by and seen

      you and Jeff on here thought I would say hello. Matt it look’s like I will be going up your way this summer on our Yearly

      Ride we are planning on riding up thru Nova Scotia and Newfoundland and back down thru Eastern states we have not

      rode thru on motorcyles yet.

    So then, matt, based on your recent expertise….
    Why did these chickens cross the road ?? ?This is your million dollar minute.

  4. Starrfoxx says:

    The chickens were crossing the road to get to Kennedy Fried Chicken.

  5. Barb V from Michigan says:

    Free range chickens in NYC. Why not?

  6. Joisy Jeff says:

    Ray’s right…lots of ‘fights’ in the bronx. escapee’s would be so surprised at the “farm” animals you find in the bronx

  7. Dennis Harper says:

    Don;t assume they’re for fighting. People in HB raise them for the same reasons people everywhere raise chickens. Bear in mind roosters have a way of getting out and about. I have a picture of my brother holding a beautiful gold and black rooster we found on a Bronx street. Turns out the owner didn’t want him, he had enough males. “Clyde” was a great pet getting along just fine with our mainstream pets.
