Raising Chicks in the City

Many of us dream of having a little home in the country where we can keep livestock and grow a vegetable garden. But what if work and family keep us rooted in the suburbs or the city? It’s still possible to raise small livestock and grow your own food, as long as you know the laws and do so responsibly.

Explore your options by turning to page 4, and read about how you can start a chicken-keeping movement where you live. Learn about the different breeds that might do well in a small flock (page 18) and consider some of the old fashioned breeds still available today (page 26). When it comes to housing, there are many varieties. If you’re energy-conscious and want to reduce your carbon footprint, consider building a small solar coop (page 34). And if you really want to go the extra mile and recycle, check out our suggestions for what to do with all that chicken poo (page 88). Yes, even poop can be useful.
