Raising Backyard Chickens Is Easier Than You Think

Robert Litt of Portland’s Urban Farm Store shares his expert tips and tricks for beginners interested in raising their own backyard flock.



Admit it. You’ve been tempted to get chickens. They’re cute, you get fresh eggs—what’s not to like? But there’s a major intimidation factor, since it’s not like you can just swing by your neighborhood pet store to pick up chicks and supplies. That’s where Robert and Hannah Littof Portland’s Urban Farm Store come in. They wrote the book—literally—on raising backyard chickens. Robert talked to us here at TakePart about his advice for chicken newbies…
