Backyard Chickens have become the new family pet of the Berkshires.  Aside from the obvious benefits of free-range eggs, keeping a small flock of chickens facilitates a connection with an all around more wholesome lifestyle.  Raising chicks gives families the opportunity to experience the natural rewards of nurturing fragile beings who will eventually reciprocate plentifully throughout the course of their lives.  As chickens peck away at each day, fertilizing the lawn with their quickly composted household food scraps, the number of pests and insects throughout a property declines rapidly.

Low-maintenance producers of fresh food, avid gardeners, organic pest controllers and lovable family friends – chickens are the new “family dog”.
