Hens Are Friends Too

Not all the chicken in my life is fried and savored. (Too morbid? Sorry.) I met this little gal Molly at Cacao Prieto, the chocolate maker in Red Hook, Brooklyn. The factory space also houses the liquor distillery where they make the excellent Widow Jane Whiskey. An odd but ultimately genius combination. As for why they keep chickens out in the courtyard? No real reason in particular, but why not?
