Hybird - the chicken stand that musician Ahmir "Questlove" Thompson and restaurateur Stephen Starr opened in Manhattan six months ago - has flown the coop.

The shop in Chelsea Market - near Starr's Buddakan and Morimoto - is shuttered and its website is down.

Starr's rep confirmed the closure, and Thompson took to Facebook to explain.

The menu includes Quest's signature chicken drumsticks (which have been served in Philly at the Roots Picnic and at Feastival), dumplings crafted by Buddakan's chefs, cupcakes, and juices and slushies.
