With a little knowledge, you can easily care for chickens and enjoy an abundance of delicious eggs.

Amy and Audrey live on a family farm. With their own three acre slice, they consider themselves to be part of a day to day experiment to see how much of their own food can be raised on a small plot while holding down two regular jobs. They are experienced in raising chickens and goats and they recently raised and processed a couple of pigs. They also tend an organic kitchen garden. They find chickens to be one of the most enjoyable and rewarding ventures so far and are eager to share what they have learned through much trial and error to others who want an abundance of the best tasting eggs in their own backyards.
