Chickens are ubiquitous in Bushwick, from its bodegas to its bistros. It’s a neighborhood where a live poultry store is not far from a Michelin-rated restaurant. This clucking resident has endured the neighborhood’s transition to a haven for foodies.

From the rotisserie birds at the local shops to the eggs distributed free on Sundays at Bushwick City Farm, the chicken appeals to residents old and new. A tour of Bushwick chickens demonstrates that this fowl won’t be migrating down the L anytime soon.
