Not only are Backyard Chickens easy to raise following these guidelines, they are interesting, beautiful and will amaze and surprise you with their antics.

Many a backyard chicken fancier has been spotted with a silly smile on their face, and a lawn chair pulled up to the pen to watch their 'birds'.

The rich fresh eggs they produce for your breakfast are an added bonus, and watching the mother hen with her chicks proudly ushering them around to find food is an all consuming passion with chicken lovers the world over.

Every sustainable gardener knows the value of the nutrient rich compost that chickens produce for their organic gardens, but did you know that a few Bantams or other smaller breeds can also be considered pet pest control? They do little damage to established plants, but wreak havoc on pest populations.
