What happens when commercial growing operations are unable to meet the needs of an ever growing population? When my family lived on a 10,000 square foot lot we were able to grow much of our own food & that is when I purchased my first chickens. Chickens are the easiest livestock to have in small spaces & offer hours & hours of entertainment, and as an added bonus you get fresh eggs. Just don't get a rooster if you live in the city. Fresh eggs are the best and you know what your chickens are eating, as well as what you are eating. They keep your yard clean & the bugs at bay naturally and most of your food waste can be eliminated. It is a win, win for you & your family, offering you peace of mind that seems harder & harder to achieve in this day & age.
