Camden County Chickens was created by Gwenne Baile after a five year effort at changing the law in Haddon Twp., NJ to allow, initially, up to four hens per back yard. (this was later changed to eight)  Since that time (2015) she has assisted more than twelve New Jersey communities in getting their laws changed as well. The work continues tweaking existing ordinances and getting new ones passed in other communities that desire their own hens.

Rosebud, our first therapy chicken, has appeared in newspapers as well as the local TV news. Sadly, she passed away.

Sandy, whose full name is Sandra Day O'Connor is a good bird and very attractive too. She will attempt to play the piano for her fans.

Our birds regularly visit nursing homes and schools. They can be seen almost every weekend at farmer's markets, sustainability functions and other special events such as autism day at the Academy of Natural Science in Philadelphia, PA.

Do you want us to come and visit you? Our calendar is already filling up. Contact us ASAP.

We do chicken story time at various libraries all over South Jersey (and occasionally Delaware and Pennsylvania). Gwenne reads stories while one of the hens sits quietly on her lap. The children then have an opportunity to pet the hen after the stories.

We also do "Books and Beaks" at several libraries where families sign up in advance for a private time for the child to read the chicken just as many libraries do with dogs. There are many advantages of using chickens over dogs. We have found that a shy child will talk to a chicken before they talk to a human. Chickens are generally non-judgmental.
