Abu Talib is one of several gardeners in New York City raising chickens. He's featured this month in National Geographic, http://ngm.typepad.com/blog_central/2009/03/urban-chickens.html.
I'll be in New York in May and hope to visit him and several others. Owen Taylor of Just Food loans out the organization's copy of How to Raise Chickens to help people get started. I'm thrilled that my book is touching so many lives.
