Backyard Chickens Have Personality Galore — Seriously!

Each chicken has their own completely unique, quirky, kooky and endearing personality. They’re stunningly beautiful, too — parading around in a variety of colors, patterns, shapes and sizes. You’ll name them, spoil them with treats, and pick them up for hugs any chance you get. You will also find yourself having conversations with them, which you will find very therapeutic and relaxing.

We all love our dogs, cats, and fish — but do they actually produce something edible? Or pay their own way? Chickens do. And once you’ve dined on their eggs, you’ll never reach for a dozen in the supermarket again. Their eggs are so much more flavorful, because you’ll eat them when they’re only minutes or hours old, not weeks or months. You’ll even see the difference in the yolks, which are a healthy orange — not the pale yellow you’re used to.

Plus, you can feel good about the organic eggs you’ll be feeding your friends and family. All it takes to get organic eggs is organic chicken feed! Research shows that chickens allowed to roam freely and eat greens lay eggs that are higher in Omega-3 fatty acids and Vitamin E — and at the same time, they’re lower in cholesterol than store-bought, too. (Think of your hair and skin!)

Chickens are, after all, the most “chic” pet you could possibly have. And we think it’s time everyone knew. Check with your neighborhood zoning rules to see if having a backyard chicken is legally acceptable. And if you’ve got questions about raising chickens, visit Vegas Roots to see our lil’ beauties.
