Keeping Pet Chickens, A Rewarding Hobby

On returning home after a stressful day you can become instantly relaxed by the greeting your feathered friends will show you.

Hens are relatively inexpensive to feed or look after and they certainly won’t become a burden on your time, as they need just a little attention to keep them in great condition.

Of course, best of all, your chooks will supply you with beautiful fresh eggs for you, your family and friends. You’ll also have the gift of them producing excellent  manure for your home garden.

Chicken Keeping Is A Joy For The Whole Family

  8. Brenda Helm Says:

    I love my girls very much and there is no law in our town forbidding chickens. Regardless, the town found us in violation of the word “farm”, fined us nearly $4,000, and gave my husband 72hrs to take my babies away from me and put them in a rescue ranch. My heart is breaking! We are appealing the decision, and introducing revisions to the town code to preserve the rights of citizens to have pet chickens. Please join us, send a letter, sign the petition, and help protect land-owner and chicken-lover rights!
