The Des Moines Backyard Chicken Group is for people who have small backyard flocks of chickens or other fowl for pets, eggs, and/or meat.

You just might be surprised at how many people
living in your neighborhood have pet chickens!

There is nothing quite like walking outside in the morning to gather
fresh organic eggs for your breakfast!

We welcome everyone that has a small backyard flock of chickens or other backyard poultry, as well as those that are interested in getting started raising a small flock of backyard poultry.

We get together once a month to share ideas and company. We are "eggcited" you have visited with us today, and hope
you join our group!
