Chickens at Chabad Tokyo
With the coronavirus spreading in the spring of 2020, Rabbi Edery thought of a way to occupy the children. Being indoors all the time would be hard. The solution: He bought 10 Boris Brown, chicks from Kyoto, and sent them via Yamato (a Japanese shipping company) to Tokyo. The city office explained that up to 50 chickens were allowed. The delivery man said, that in all his 30 years of service, this was the first time that he delivered live chickens! After about four months they started laying eggs. The chickens and their eggs became a big hit with the Edery kids, and for the neighbors, it was a deal-breaker! They love them!
