Due to the widespread demand for organic locally grown food, there is a new movement called Occupy Backyards. Gardeners, environmentalists, micro-flockers and chicken farmers alike all know the full value of raising chickens. Chickens are a marvelous member of the farm family because they eat predatory insects which can be destructive to gardens as well as fleas and ticks. They also help to aerate and fertilize soil which is extremely beneficial to maintaining good soil health. To boot, farm fresh eggs are superior to eggs produced via industrial agriculture.
Tune in to this segment of The Organic View Radio Show, as host, June Stoyer is joined by special guest, Patricia Foreman to discuss what you need to know to raise your own chickens and join the movement. Stay tuned!
