Backyard Hens: Chickens 201
You have decided that you want Backyard Chickens! Good for you. Now, how do you do that so that your birds are safe and healthy, your neighbors are happy, and you are free to enjoy the benefits of owning chickens? Our teacher, Gwenne Bailey, known as the Chicken Lady of South Jersey, has worked with nineteen South Jersey towns to modify their ordinances to allow backyard hens. She teaches husbandry classes that many local communities require to become licensed to keep backyard hens.
