Keeping Chickens in the backyard of suburban homes has become increasingly popular.
This trend is a result of several factors.
1.) people want to enjoy eating eggs that are fresh. Each day a chicken produces one egg!
2.) people want to know that the eggs they eat are not loaded with hormones.
3.) people want to eat chickens that are truly free- range not just cage- free for a couple hours a day.
4.) people want to know that chickens are not on a high corn or grain diet.
5.) lastly, chickens reduce the tick and bug population on their property.
For these reason chickens are a great addition to your household pet collection!
If you have chickens in your yard please share what you enjoy most about having them.
