Since June 2009.
1 Americana, two white hornlegs, and 1 cuckoo maran.
Interesting pets, tastier and healthier eggs, insect control, yard fertilizer, and just all around entertainment that they provide.
We have 7 chickens. I have recently completed the construction of a chicken tractor. My chicks are just over 2 months old and getting older. I would like to see a growing community of backyard chicken owners.
It is a great opportunity for people raising, or interested in raising chickens to meetup, swap information, help educate each other, and enjoy hanging out. It seems most backyard chicken owners are people with a very conscientious view of animals, family, and the environment. Young, old, chicken newbies or veterans, all are welcome.
