This is not a how-to-book, but a tale of apprehension, excitement, joy, despair, and happiness. I have found that keeping backyard chickens brings out the best in a man or woman, and can help to slow down your lifestyle, if you let them.
It is a story that spans five years, from the first day that I suggested keeping chickens to my wife Kim, up to the time when I expanded the chicken run to its current size. It is still standing today as a testament to my newly acquired construction skills, the family's assistance, and lots of hard labour.
The benefits of keeping backyard chickens are many, as you will find out if you read on, from laying eggs, enriching your soil, to weeding and preparing your vegetable beds for the next crop.
With all that said, I find that the biggest benefit is laughter! Yes, laughter. They are hilarious to watch, and all have individual personalities that will simply amaze you each and every day.
Chickens have, in a small way, enhanced my journey towards a more sustainable lifestyle, but most of all, chickens are extremely willing workers that will enhance your garden more than you ever could by yourself.
