It all starts with a plan.

I love raising chickens!

And what's not to love? I mean, they poop all over the place, they churn up a bunch of dust, and they force you to go outside into the cold and wet. Every. Single. Day.

In actuality, though, I really do love keeping chickens. Sure, they come with their share of inconveniences, but the pros definitely outweigh the cons.

The fresh eggs and meat that they provide are so much better than their store-bought counterparts. The yokes are a rich, deep orange. The meat is juicier, tastier, and ... well ... meatier. And then there's the fact that you had a hand in raising it, because let's face it, everything tastes better when you've invested some time into it.
