Raising backyard chickens has become popular in Davis County. Raising chickens provides for fresh eggs, meat, enhancing self-sustainability, providing prime manure for garden and flower bed fertilizer, and teaching youth responsibility. This website is devoted to providing resources on all aspects of raising chickens and also answers questions about eggs and egg production.
