Urban Chickens: The Latest Trend In New York City (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

HuffPost Green is based in New York, and we've heard plenty about the chicken-raising trend in our fair city from organizations like Just Food. However, we're quite excited to see that the practice is getting such great exposure on a platform like The Today Show. Check out this awesome video about people raising chickens in New York City and nearby areas. From backyards in Brooklyn to schools in the South Bronx, chicken-raising is definitely not just for rural farms anymore -- it's part of a much larger trend of people taking interest in where their food comes from and shortening the distance from farm to table.
