One of the first things people get really excited about on their Homesteading Journey is adding chickens. They seem like an easy first livestock animal; small, easily managed, and they produce eggs and meat with minimal effort. Many towns and cities are allowing chickens within city limits giving urban folk a chance to grow more of their own food. Some sufferers of “Barnheart” tend to think of themselves as Snow White when it comes to their livestock dreams ... everyone is sweet and friendly and you all sing together and there's minimal poop. Reality can come as a bit of a shock. (A great read for the homesteader and homesteader wanna-be is Barnheart: The Incurable Longing For A Farm Of One's Own, by Jenna Woginrich)
