The primary reason for keeping chickens varies from household to household. But for most, keeping a few backyard hens for a daily supply of fresh eggs is preferred over raising meat birds.

Maybe you’re looking for bug and weed control, or having your very own fertilizer machine for your garden. Whatever your reason, we are here to help you prepare, problem solve, and most importantly, to expect the unexpected with ease.

Before you join the trendy circle of urban chicken keepers, you’ll want to familiarize yourself with what this responsibility actually entails.

There are a few basics to learn before you get started, research is always your best tool for success…. and there’s an array of information right here to help you in your successful pursuit.
