NYC Chicks

3:00 PM -- The Associated Press issued a story today about chicks living it up in Manhattan. (No, not them.)

  • A ritzy high rise is a fashionable address for some recent arrivals to the city: A batch of tiny chicks.

Yes, this kind. It turns out that even farm animals live better than I do in New York City.

  • The superintendent of the building near United Nations headquarters said he uses a makeshift basement pen as a temporary home for mail-order critters that are destined for his upstate farm.

    "I'm raising chickens because I plan to retire," the 62-year-old super, John Hyranyaz, told the New York Post for a story in Tuesday's editions.

The new retirement plan under the Bush administration, apparently.

  • The Health Department told the newspaper it was not illegal to keep chickens in the city, only roosters.

Sexist, if you ask me.
