In 2010 my family and I moved to Jersey City. My kids were young, so I wanted to teach them an important lesson about sustainability and farming. I asked them the age old question "What came first, the chicken or the egg?" This quickly sparked their interest. We took a trip to a farm and purchased a dozen eggs. For 21 days, we watched the eggs and waited for them to hatch, and finally three did. We gained popularity around the neighborhood for our small urban farm. We took in rabbits and ducks and continued to raise chickens every year. Now, we have 25+ chickens, 4 ducks, 2 rabbits, 3 dogs, 3 cats, and 1 fish.
