If you have ever said to yourself "I would love to have chickens in my backyard" congratulations! Your journey has just begun. It was just a short time ago we were thinking the exact same thoughts as you are now. Although we thought keeping chickens was such a great idea, we really didn't know how it would possible. We live on 1/4 of an acre, have neighbors, had no idea what we were doing and didn't think that chickens in the suburbs would be able to live comfortably. We had so many questions and it seemed that the more we read and researched, the more confusing keeping chickens in our backyard became. I am here to tell you two things. One is that keeping chickens in your backyard is very possible and very simple. Secondly, as overwhelming and confusing as it may seem now, it is only as overwhelming and confusing as you make it. Raising chickens will take some work and effort on your part, but it is not difficult and you will be rewarded. We hope that through our journey we can encourage you to put aside any fears that you may have and take the plunge into backyard chicken keeping. We promise you it will all be worth it!
