A to Z Backyard Chickens for Total Beginners

What
came first, the chicken or the egg? It is obviously the chicken,
right? I mean, where would an egg come from if it were not laid by a
chicken? So the chicken had to have come first. Now I hear your
anger, there is no need to shout. You are asking me where the chicken
came from and I will answer your question in the very next sentence.
The chicken came from an egg. I hear you breathe a sigh of relief as
if you have won the argument. I can see the slight smile on your face
as you believe yourself to have won the argument but this is not so,
for you see, the egg which you are so happy about had to have come
from a chicken. So, obviously, the chicken came first.

Now
that we have established that, we can get on to the content of this
book. You are here to learn everything you need to know about raising
backyard chickens. The question which will no doubt be on your mind
is, why would I want to raise backyard chickens? The answer to this
question is, why not?

The
most obvious benefit of raising chickens in your own backyard is the
eggs. Most laying hens will lay an egg every day or two. If you were
to have three chickens in your backyard then you could expect to have
up to three eggs every day. These humble little eggs will be the best
eggs which you have ever tasted. They will be more flavorful than the
eggs you would buy in the store and more colorful than the rising
sun.

If
you are raising backyard chickens then there is a good chance that
you are composting in your backyard too. If you are not then these
little-feathered beasts will take care of your table scraps and turn
it into some of the best compost known to man (and woman). The
chickens will also take care of the bugs and other small animals
which may roam into your yard. When they have processed these scraps
or bugs, they will poop all over your lawn (or wherever else you have
put them. This compost poop will help your plants and flowers grow
like nothing else.

We
all love the smell of freshly cut grass but the time saved by not
having to mow your lawn will more than make up for that. Let them
roam free on your lawn and they will trim it for you. As an added
bonus, you do not even need to pay them.
