With the increased interest of having more control of what we eat, many people are turning to locally produced and homegrown food. A small flock of backyard chickens would add to the homeowners' variety of food in his control.
Homegrown food is more healthy and nutritious and has less impact on our carbon footprint. The benefits of backyard chickens include kitchen scrap recycling, bug control, organic fertilizer and healthier eggs. They are great pets, too!
