    For my Girlscout gold award project I am attempting to spread the wonders of backyard chickens to my local community. I'm creating a basic how-to get started raising chickens brochure to hand out to people as well as an informational youtube video. Part of my brochure is people talking about how much they love their chickens, so if some people would be willing to say a couple sentences about their favorite part of chicken keeping and/or the benefits from raising the chickens that would help me out immensely. If you are willing to be quoted just comment your few sentences below. Thank you very much in advance.

    Chickens are underestimated, they are loving, loyal and friendly. They are great company and there's no better animal.

    Chickens are the ultimate back yard pet. They provide weed and insect control. They will till your soil, provide free fertilizer and mulch. If cared for properly, they are odor free. Unlike many dogs, they are not noisy unless they have something important to say. They will make happily make your breakfast.

    Yay!!
    Chickens are a species overlooked so greatly by the vast majority. They have such characters, delicious eggs and what you put in, you get out. Raising chicks along side your girls is an experience so great any one who misses it is extremely unfortunates. Chickens are beautiful creatures, I wish more people could see that.
