Want to Have a Couple of Chickens?
Here is Your Starting Point!
I love pet chickens.
Hens, that is.
Roosters are too noisy, but hens just quietly cluck and peck the ground, and nobody even knows they are there.
They eat flies and other insects for you, keeping to a minimum the annoying flying things in your yard.
They also eat your vegetable scraps, lowering your volume of garbage. And, eventually, they give you eggs. Lots of them.
Have you ever wished you had been raised on a farm and had to scatter a handful of corn to the chickens every day? Now you can. With a simple coop, and a flock of 3 (they do best in groups of at least 3), you can have fresh eggs even if you live in a basic subdivision with neighbors, curbs, and paved streets.
Backyard chickens are on the rise in this troubled economy, and keeping a small coop fits with being green–you know where some of your food (at least your eggs) come from. Try it!
