Are you thinking about raising backyard chickens? Or perhaps you’re interested in growing your flock. While there are several benefits of raising backyard chickens, we want to share our top five with you

Quality of Food

Raising backyard chickens gives you the opportunity to know where your food comes from and control its quality. Our nutritious chicken feed is not only packed with nourishing ingredients for your chickens, but it ensures a healthier and happier lifestyle for you and your family. 

Farm Fresh Eggs at Low Cost

Having access to delicious, farm-fresh eggs, at no cost, is probably the most common reason for people to own backyard chickens. If you are feeding your chickens healthy and protein-packed feed, their productivity will increase—saving you even more money and a few trips to the store.

Natural Insect Control

Backyard chickens love exploring their backyards, and when they do, they often look for alternative food sources. They will eat all kinds of bugs such as ticks, roaches, spiders, ants, and mosquitos. 

Waste Reduction

While backyard chickens prefer our non-GMO, gluten-free chicken feed, they will also eat your family’s discarded healthy food scraps. However, ensure that these leftover treats aren’t more than 10% of their daily food intake, and perhaps limit their intake to just once or twice a week.

Natural Compost

Each backyard chicken farm needs a backyard garden to accompany it. Fresh chicken manure can serve as a nutrient-dense, natural fertilizer for your plants. However, make sure to do some research prior spreading it across your vegetation to ensure best practices.

While these are our top five benefits, we also want to mention that they also make entertaining pets! If you’re still learning about what it takes to grow chickens, learn more about flock management.
