I am looking for ideas on how to raise chickens in your backyard. We have raised lambs, and they are very tasty. Now we are trying our hand at raising chickens for 3 reasons:
- to eat all the hoards of grasshoppers
- fresh eggs
- fresh meat
We started this endeavor with 21 chicks from the feedstore. We are in the process of building the coop. I am looking for ideas to get the most for our money.

Although I live in the suburbs I enjoy Mother Earth News. Their website often has articles on raising chickens.
