It's easy to see why more people today are raising their own backyard chicken flocks - they're a great source of fresh eggs and a fun way to learn about caring for animals, self-sufficiency, and connecting with where our food comes from. And with planning they can even provide a source of trade or income.

This UF/IFAS Extension guide is a concise introduction to raising your own backyard flocks - including information on local ordinances, building coops, feeding your chickens, protecting your flock from predators, selecting breeds, gathering eggs, keeping your birds healthy and more. Whether you want to start a business, bring eggs to the breakfast table or welcome new pets into your family, this book is the perfect starting place.
