Backyard Chickens Are Work

New, 12 comments

Angelenos: chickens are more than just "garden accessories." As backyard chicken raising becomes trendier, advocates want you to know that keeping a coop is more than just fun, games, and free eggs: "It requires a certain amount of care and maintenance, a certain amount of expense. You don't start raising chickens thinking you're going to save money on eggs. Maybe that's where some of the faddists are starting to fall by the wayside. Because they realize, 'Oh this is work.' It's not romantic, it's work." [KPCC, image via]
