Let’s Raise Backyard Chickens!

Karen Krumenacher, ProprietorI’m Karen Krumenacher, and I’ve been raising chickens in the backyard of my suburban home for nearly 20 years. Over the years, as our kids have grown, our whole family has gotten into the act.

And let me tell you: Once you’ve eaten truly fresh eggs, it’s hard to go back to the kind you get at a grocery store. Farm-fresh eggs — free-range or not — are delicious; with bright, substantial yolks and firm whites. You’ll not only see, but TASTE the difference!

The best way to get this kind of fresh eggs is to have your own flock of chickens. It’s much easier than most people imagine, and you don’t need to have a farm to be able to keep a flock!

Thinking about getting started, but have questions? You’re not alone. According to the WorldWatch Institute, even city dwellers are discovering the joys and benefits of raising their own chickens. Are you looking to keep just a few chickens in your residential home’s backyard, or maybe a few more on your small farm or homestead?  Maybe you’re looking for laying hens only, or perhaps a combination of laying hens and meat birds?

Whatever questions you have, we can help… I’ll work closely with you, and take you step-by-step through everything you need to know.
