Try Chicken Starter Livestock for the Homestead

Getting started with a backyard or homestead flock of chicken starter livestock is simple and inexpensive. If you have your own hens, you’ll get the freshest, most nutritious eggs possible! Plus there are so many ways that chickens (and other poultry) can help in the garden and around the homestead. Following this advice on housing, predator control and flock management will get you off on the right foot.

Your backyard flock can help preserve our historic breeds. The old English game breed has a thousand-year history as a utilitarian farm fowl.
