Hi! I’m Charlie and I was raised on a rural farm in Iowa for the first 18 years of my life, and grew up loving chickens.
Since starting my own career in a large metropolitan area I haven’t lost my passion for raising chickens. As a result I’ve started raising chickens in my suburban backyard to produce and sell eggs for my family. Currently we have a wide variety of chickens, and raise about 28 chickens for egg production.
We’ve started Backyard Chicken Guide to help other city folks learn to raise chickens in town through our guide, video, forum, and blog. We hope you enjoy it and engage in our chicken community!
