Resources for Chicken Keepers

We aren’t famous, and our website isn’t fancy. We are just regular folks who raise chickens on what we consider a pretty special 1.5-acre hobby farm located in the densely populated territory of the desert Southwest. We built this website 12 years ago and are continually dedicated to providing informative articles and valuable resources to the urban chicken keeper. Our goal is to help you raise a happy, healthy flock from brooder to coop and beyond.
