Keeping Chickens Cartoon Series

By Jeremy Meltingtallow

Keeping chickens is all the rage in urban gardens. It was recently approved in New York City and I guess that’s fine, provided people don’t keep roosters and everything is well-fenced. We lived next to a woman with chickens in New Zealand and the roosters would get us up waaaaaay before dawn, plus the chickens came into our garden and pecked through our veggies like feathered monsters.
