Camden County Chickens was created by Gwenne Baile after a five year effort at changing the law in Haddon Twp., NJ to allow up to four hens per back yard. Since that time (2015) she has assisted eight 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, her therapy chicken, has appeared in newspapers as well as the local TV news. We welcome our newest hen, Blossom, into the working chicken world. Blossom was a foundling and has a great personality. She also lays eggs almost daily.
They 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.
