Backyard chickens have become increasingly popular in our area in recent years. Most people keep chickens for the benefit of fresh eggs, but they are great pets for a number of reasons.

While they certainly are egg-laying champions, keeping chickens can provide other benefits. When properly composted and aged, chicken manure can make an incredibly good fertilizer for your vegetable garden due to its high nitrogen, potassium, and phosphorus.

Chickens can also eat ticks and other pests in your yard, and at the end of the growing season, they can help to clean up your garden patch, eliminating scraps and insects and turning the soil.

Chickens vary in their sociability with people, but they are typically quite sociable with one another which is why keeping a minimum of four is recommended. Watching them can be great fun, and for those with patience they can even be trained to perform tricks!

As with any pet, chickens do require work. They poop a lot and they need an adequately spacious coop that will keep them safe from predators like hawks, foxes and coyotes. If you go away on vacation you will need to find someone to take care of your chickens, as they require daily care. Also, as chickens age, their egg laying capacity decreases. Are you ready and willing to provide care for chickens for life, even when they are no longer laying? Be sure that you do your research before you bring chickens home. The website backyardchickens.com is a helpful resource to get you started.
