Own Egg-Laying Chickens

Enjoy spending time in your backyard with a pet that lays eggs.

You’re part of the unschool movement, enjoy slow living, and want to raise your family in a way that gives your children an authentic childhood? You may already have explored natural learning, planted an heirloom garden, and started canning. How about adding hand-gathered eggs to your homestead?

The best part about owning backyard chickens is that they lay eggs. That leads to baking, taking care of animals, and spending time as a family — not just being in the same room. Or “alone together” as we call it.
