(We've had some bad luck with our two clutches of chickens from predators, so my family has stopped getting them. But too years have passed from their unfortunate deaths and my parents said that if I could create a Powerpoint slideshow that shows them that we can keep chickens 100%, or as close to, safe then we can give it another shot. This is my last chance, so I'm going to need good information on chickens! We're starting from scratch, so consider me a new chicken owner! I will quote some of you guys in the presentation, by the way. We live in Nevada County, California, so it is heavily wooded and ranges in varieties of predators! Thanks! ~Muddeh) So the start of my slideshow is: The Pros and Cons of having chickens. Yes, there can be some cons. I have to make it realistic. So what are some good and bad reasons to owning chickens?
