The Raleigh Durham Backyard Poultry Meetup Group is for people who have small backyard flocks of chickens for pets, eggs, and meat.

You just might be suprised 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, and those that are interested in getting started raising a small backyard flock of chickens.

We get together once a month at our "Let's Talk Chicken Over Chicken" meetings.

We are "eggcited" you have visited with us today, and hope you will consider joining our group!

    "I love gardening and would like to have chickens. However I currently live in a neighborhood that does not allow chickens. We are trying to petition to get permission and if that does not work I am moving."

    "The rooster we just re-homed was the only one that was aggressive. The others are friendly to us and good to their hens. Are there specific breeds that tend to be better roosters?..."
