Because Chickens

BY GRETCHEN BEDELL
@ VOL 14 ON OCT 17, 2015

"This is the stuff dreams are made of, which is why you should have chickens in your backyard because you can have experiences like these."

In "Because Chickens", from PechaKucha Williamsburg Vol. 14, Gretchen Bedell shares the hazards, perils, and general ridiculousness of suburban chicken keeping. She explains how her "Mexican ground parrots" as she calls them to circumnavigate the homeowners association's chicken ban. are basically just like fish for the backyard, but they lay eggs you actually want to eat. You bound to learn something interesting in this quirky PechaKucha, for example how one can actually reclaim eggs from thieving snakes. 

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" On Tuesday, November 3rd, 2015.

Because Vanity

BY GRETCHEN BEDELL
@ VOL 18 ON MAR 10, 2018

Gretchen Bedell freely admits that it was the desire to look better that led her to the gym, not fitness or health or strength. Of course, those things happened anyway. And it opened another opportunity to have a positive influence on her kids.
