    I'm new here and thought it would be fun to post at least seven reasons to have chickens.[​IMG]
    Here's my 7.
    1- health fresh gmo free organic eggs
    2- pest control. they eat ticks and other insects
    3- They make great pets. some are so lovable and become attached to you.
    4- great for kids for so many reasons
    5- eating and selling local foods
    6 they are great for compost consuming 7 pounds of waste a year for each chicken. Keeping landfills cleaner or emptier.
    7- they can provide a small income
