If you live in the suburbs, owning chickens in the city is not the worst idea you could have.

In fact, it’s a great idea.

So if you’re thinking about getting into poultry production in your

Owning Chickens in the City

Why get Chickens?

  • They provide you with manure for your vegetable garden
  • They eat household food scraps
  • They help in controlling insect in your garden
  • You reduce the demand for the inhumane treatment of battery and barn raised chickens
  • Chickens have great personalities
