Baby Chicks to Healthy Hens

Raising chickens in your backyard

Unloved in the 'burbs

Raising chickens in the backyard is an easy, painless way to enjoy fresh eggs and get the benefits of raising chickens. Chickens are entertaining companions, competent weeders if you let them free range in the garden, and leave plenty of fertilizer for other growing things. They'll eat bugs and provide excellent pest control. In fact, for anyone with a reasonable bit of room (and it doesn't take much) and a cooperative city government, a couple hens are a window into a more sustainable lifestyle.
