Last week I had the opportunity to meet, up close and personal, the chickens that are a part of the new Community Farm located at the Montclair Historical Society behind the Isreal Crane house located on Orange Road in Montclair.  Each day I arrive at work at MHS,  I find myself walking over to say good morning to the chickens.    I chat with them and then continue on with my day.  They make me smile!!

After attending a recent town meeting discussing local ordinances about community gardens, chickens and bees, I noticed the demeanor of the meeting changed during the chicken discussion from a tone of “serious business” to an atmosphere of giggles, laughter and smiles.  Chickens…we’re talking about raising chickens…

Keep reading as I continue to investigate life with chickens at the MHS community farm.
