Oh I am so sorry to hear that. My condolences. Did he realize what a name he made for himself? I wonder if he realized people would still be missing his chicken in the 21st century?

I am sorry to hear about your grandfather, he left behind great memories as you see by the all the postings. I never have been to the chicken coop but my friend has, and she is always raving about the chicken and onion rings they had. If it is no longer a secret, could I possibly get the recipes to the chicken and onion rings, I would like to suprise my friend. thank you very much.

Default Chicken Coop's wallboxes

In 1990 I bought the Seeburg Consolette wallboxes that were from the Chicken Coop in hartford from Self Service Sales, who owned and operated them in the Chicken Coop. I don't know what happened to the hideaway that ran them. They were filthy and covered with grease and dirt, I cleaned and refurbished them and installed 11 of them in 1991 in a Pizza Place in Andover CT where they remained in service until about 2003. Some of them have been installed in Lindy's Diner in Keene NH and a few are now in a Pizza Place in Portland CT.

Wow...I must be loosing it! When I saw this "Chicken Coop" post I was thinking of a night club on Hamilton St. in New Haven. Now I realize it was called "The Snow Chicken"... what the heck that name could be about who knows.

Am I hallucinating or did Chicken Coop also have spaghetti on the menu? I was really young at the time. I think I do remember there being onion rings, tho! My parents took use kids there many, many times.
