  • Ms. Kirshner, 27, grew up on a farm in Washington State, home to goats, sheep and, yes, chickens, which when she was young she was charged with caring for. As an adult living in Brooklyn, she arranged to have chickens again, for the eggs, but mostly for fun.

    They hope to find an apartment nearby, so Mr. Kumagai, 39, an artist and a graphic designer, can bike to his studio. And it must have a functional kitchen so Ms. Kirshner, who recently started a recipe publication, Sweets and Bitters Quarterly, can test recipes.

    While the couple understand they may have to say goodbye to their pets, they are still trying to get the word out through friends, through real estate agents and through Twitter.


    These people sound like absolute monsters. They should just kill their pets and move into a kitchen-less apartment like regular people.
  • Better luck next time, Sandy!
  • "My chickens bring me a lot of joy, but I know we have to be realistic," Ms. Kirshner said.

    And next you'll be screaming that everyone should live in the city and not be commuting in from the suburbs.

    It's just chickens living in a coop in an otherwise empty field. She would just like to live close to them.

    The horror, the horror.

    [That said this type of thing is precisely why I'll help people take care of chickens and ducks but I won't have any of my own. If something happened to my house or [] forbid, the SO and I someone could easily take in our bunny. I've seen a friend try to place chickens when he got abruptly kicked off land someone had been trying to sell for McMansions... and that *wasn't* in NYC.]
  • Was ready to rage on entitled and stupid hipsters, found some very reasonable people. Who pissed in subby's cheerios.

    My point exactly. Move out of the city if you want chickens and pets of that nature, and commute.

    The chicken coop should only be used for tweeting.
  • Jeebus just kill them. It would be nice if this generation would pull their head out of their asses every now and then and just leave the city. It will improve you as a person and make you more self-reliant. Also, you can have animals without nearly as many problems and even be able to tout your goddamn chickens as "free range fair trade meat free eco-alternative solution to intersectionality amongst not only class but gender" on your farking blog where you have to AW out, because doing something just to do it is lame these days. Sorry for the rant, farkers, but hipster dbags like these annoy me nearly as much as gangstas, except with less killing and more venereal disease. Perhaps they should realize they are the 1%-trying to raise chickens in a city loft lmao.
  • Winner, winner, chicken dinner!
  • My grandparents kept a pigeon coop in the Bronx so I don't really see what a big deal this is.

    Oh yeah, hipsters.
  • From TFA:

    Hannah Kirshner and her boyfriend, Hiroshi Kumagai

    They must be trolling. This is too perfect a hipster-pairing to have happened by pure chance.
  • Lemme git this straight. She knew the flood waters wuz comin', and she saved her own hide and left the chickens locked in a coop?
  • Chicken coops are all the rage nowadays according to Treehugger.com, and super-modern chicken coop designs give greens, DIY types and urban fipsters (farm hipsters--back formed on bipsters or blue-collar shipsters) a choice of a wide range of artsey, super-ergonomic or just funky designs.

    Here is a site dedicated to "design pron" which shows the range of modern coops:

    Down the page you will see the Omlet UK coop (colourful plastic). This was the coop that I saw on Treehugger:

    Yes, for today's go-ahead New Yorker, coops are out and coops are in. What? Yes. That's what I said. Co-ops are out and coops are in.
  • I guess Brooklyn's cheaper than I thought, if a graphic artist and a startup recipes blogger can afford it.
  • so are hipsters the new hippies?
  • Beekeeping was trending in NYC last year. Wonder how many bees drowned.
  • What?

    No rent control?
