Backyard chickens have many benefits including providing eggs, entertainment and pest control. 

From providing fertilizer to killing pests there are many benefits to having backyard chickens.

The antics of your backyard chickens will provide you with hours of entertainment and all of your friends will be jealous of how beautiful they are. Not to mention the delicious fresh eggs on your breakfast table every day. There are a few downfalls to keeping chickens, like predators, but the many benefits outweigh the few negatives.
