In a time of uncertainty, raising hens can help a family be fed when the store shelves or bank account are empty. Eggs are a staple that can be eaten alone or used in recipes for things such as bread. The city of Chicago allows people to raise hens, why can't one of its suburbs do the same? One large egg provides 6g of Protein, 11% of your daily value of vitamin D, 63mg of potassium and so much more. Contrary to popular belief, hens are not noisy animals. According to backyardchickencoops.com most breeds of hens make little to no noise, and what noise they do make is only 60-70 decibels, that of a regular human conversation (a dogs bark is at 90 decibels). Roosters are the culprit of more noise and issues, but a rooster is not needed for hens to lay eggs. The waste from chickens can easily be cultivated into your backyard gardens, be them edible or flowers. Chickens are omnivores and can eat most anything, just be sure their basic nutrition requirements are met.
