Incredible Chickens: The Complete Guide to Raising Chickens at Home In Your Backyard!

Have you thought about raising your own chickens?  Fresh eggs from your own backyard chickens are healthier than factory farmed eggs from the supermarket.  When you let your chickens roam and eat bugs, grass and seeds these eggs are richer and nutrient dense.  Don’t believe it?  Crack open one store bought egg and one pastured egg.  The first thing you will notice is it takes a slightly harder “whack” to crack open the farm egg.  That’s because the shell is thicker to protect the embryo inside.  The 2nd thing you will notice is the deep orange color of the yolk compared to the pale yellow yolk of the store bought egg.  The 3rd thing you notice is the taste.  Ahhh, there’s no comparison!

Even if you’ve never raised chickens before, you can learn how.  They are easy to keep.   In fact, chickens and rabbits were the main producers of protein kept in backyards during World War II when food was rationed.  They are easy keepers, quiet (as long as you don’t have a rooster) and efficient producers for a self-reliant lifestyle.
