Who can raise a chicken? Anyone can! No, though, anyone who wants to provide eggs, meat, and fun backyard pets for their family can have chickens. The only challenges you will have are space, a small investment, and city/town ordinances. We will discuss not only how to find the best chickens, but why they are ideal for you and your family to raise. We will cover mobile and stationary coops, free-range chickens, and different breeds that are best for eggs or meat.
Pro-chicken movement? You probably think I made that up, but it is a real thing. Over the last five years, more and more people are participating in food production for their families. In turn, more cities and towns have been changing their ordinances to accommodate this resurgence in self-sufficient families, as the benefits outweigh the risks.

Chickens have become popular because they work well in small space environments, like suburban backyards. With a growing concern for genetically modified food, hormone-filled chickens, and who knows what else science can come up with to enhance chickens and their eggs, raising them in your backyard is a perfect alternative. Also, with rising costs of eggs due to transportation and energy cost increases, having eggs straight from the hen house 20 feet from your backdoor is a viable and money-saving method of food production.
