"Agriculture must mediate between nature and the human community, with ties and obligations in both directions. To farm well requires an elaborate courtesy toward all creatures, animate and inanimate.”
- Wendell Berry

Chickens are a great starter animal for new homesteaders, providing both meat and eggs. Feeding, watering, and collecting eggs are easy chores for kids. Much like rabbits, poultry are relatively quick and easy to care for compared to larger livestock.
why do we raise them?
