My urban chickens

Here’s a picture of the “urban chickens” for which this blog is named. Chickens are pretty ridiculous but also cool to have around. And the fresh eggs are great.

These are actually our second batch of chickens.

The first batch was lost to a Major Urban Chicken Predator: the coyote. We were letting the chickens roam free, thus apparently attracting coyotes from all over the LA basin. It wasn’t pretty.

The new batch doesn’t get to leave the cage, which probably explains why they are much less friendly than the first batch.
