My name is Jason Stroud, and there are two things I have done consistently throughout my nearly 44 years: 1) lived in cities; 2) raised chickens in those cities. Los Angeles, Paris, New York–wherever I’ve lived, I’ve built coops and raised chickens.
Why? Chickens–hens, specifically–are the easiest and most productive pets in the world. I sell chickens (raising them from the time they’re hatched); I build urban- and chicken-friendly coops; I sell healthy chicken feed; and I’ll give you as much advice as you can handle.
I live in Red Hook, Brooklyn–where I also run an antiques restoration business and sell furniture–along with my wife (the writer Susan Gregory Thomas and blogger of Ask a Broke-Ass Grouch), our three children, two dogs, and a parrot.
