There are different rules for labeling meat and eggs when they are being sold, but I find it’s easiest to raise my own chickens and eggs as organic, free range and cage-free when I simply give them the food and space that seems fair.

Read @P. Allen Smith's latest article on raising chickens. When it comes to raising backyard chickens, it’s like having any other pet. Each chicken has its own personality and style, and if you feed, protect and love it, it will give you far more in return.

Each chicken requires three to five feet of space to roam, and you’ll also want a coop, or house, for them to escape the elements and predators. If you don’t have much space in your backyard, I recommend bantams, fondly called bantys, which are small-sized varieties of chickens.

If you have children, select a breed that is calm and gentle in temperament but has a wacky appearance, such as Silkies, Cochins, Houdans or Orpingtons.
