Keeping Backyard Chickens

agoudey Eggs & Meat, Recent Posts

I first saw a magazine about Backyard Chickens at Walmart about seven years ago.  I have always liked the idea of growing my own food, and the thought of keeping laying hens immediately intrigued me.  And then, five years ago, my son came home with two chicks that had been hatched out in their grade one class.  We haven’t bought eggs since those first chicks came into lay in fall 2012.  Below I’ve organized some thoughts that might be helpful if you too are considering a backyard flock.
