Why Raise Chickens?

Companionship – Chickens can be a wonderful addition to any family. Not only are they cute but if you let them, their individual personalities will shine through. Letting chickens into your heart is an egg-cellent way to live.

Pest Control – Lyme disease has been out of control for a few years in the North East. If you are looking for a way to get rid of ticks and other bugs, chickens are wonderful for reducing the population. Let them strut and cluck around the yard and they will create a tick free environment.

Eggs – Most likely the number one reason to raise chickens is for their eggs. With genetic modifications, inhumanity, and pesticides, people are trying to find a better way to get their eggs. You can make sure that your chickens are happy and healthy, thus creating a healthy diet for your family.

Self Sufficiency – The past few months have taught us that the more self sufficient you are the easier facing a pandemic is. The more you grow and raise at home means the less you have to purchase. Supply and demand will not be a problem for a family that owns laying hens.
