Urban Chicks Celebrating Backyard Chooks in the City
By Renee Lang

There's nothing new about chickens in the backyard, especially if you live in the countryside or even a semi-rural environment. But the growing trend of keeping chickens in a suburban - and in some cases inner-city - backyard is something else. These days hens are hot! A truly impressive number of city backyards are now home to chooks of an amazing array of breeds and colours including - but not limited to - glossy Orpingtons and Barnevelders, delicate Houdans and Aracaunas, fluffy white Chinese Silkies and, of course, good old brown Shavers. Through a series of stunning colour photographic portraits and concise interviews, Urban Chicks showcases 55 Auckland households and their feathered inhabitants. Along with a host of families, young working couples, solo households and people sharing flats are well-known individuals including food writer Julie Biuso, Shortland Street actress Rachel Forman, DYI expert Justin Newcomb, Green Goddess Wendyl Nissen and Labour politician David Cunliffe. What they all have in common is a love for their chooks. Urban Chicks also features an illustrated ID guide to different breeds and lots of useful tips on how to keep your chooks - urban or otherwise - happy and healthy.
