We love chickens so much we want to see them in backyards everywhere! One of our biggest missions is to help people to feel more confident raising chickens as ‘pets with benefits.’

We want to help you become the best steward of these little beasts, so we’ve put together a list of resources to help you get there!


The blog is home to all our chicken articles. We’ve covered topics on all things chicken keeping, from picking chicken breeds to protecting your flock from predators. If you’ve got a question, our blog has an answer!
