If my love and belief in chickens hasn’t made itself obvious to you yet, then here is something else for you to consider. It’s called the chicken cycle. Chickens really do go hand in hand with organic gardening, sustainable living and self-sufficiency. Not everyone can have pigs, cattle or sheep, but (nearly) everyone with a backyard can keep chickens. Here is a little illustration I’ve done that shows exactly how chickens and people can benefit each other.
What this illustration doesn’t show is the interest and enjoyment people get from caring for living things. Keeping chickens is another life enriching experience, and it is another way for us to get more in touch with how our food is produced.
