Visit my Hub on my very favorite kind of animal, the chicken. It's more than having them for dinner, just because it is the #1 favorite dish and can be fixed in every way imaginable. I love chickens because they give back. They are cuddly, soft, fun and easy to keep. And, if you treat them right, you get the most wonderful rich eggs.
If you want any kind of information about raising your own chickens, BackyardChickens has become the #1 website on the internet. Originally designed in 1999 for the those wanting to raise urban chickens, they've developed into a complete resource.
