Welcome to Backyard Chickens! This is part of a series of sites for raising your own food in your backyard. Take a look at the right hand side for my other sites on self-reliance topics.
My family and I have raised various animals for the past 20 + years in our backyard. Backyard Chickens is a blog about how to raise chickens for your own eggs or meat in your backyard. If you are disgusted with how our food is grown and raised today and want to have control over your own food, chickens are a great way to start. Find out what the laws are in your city. Many places allow a few hens in your backyard as pets. Just a few hens provide nutritious eggs, fertilizer for your garden, bug control, and enjoyment.
