Why Not Keep Chickens in Our Backyard?
That’s a question we’ve been asking ourselves a lot lately.
We, Peter Eulberg and Sascha Göbel, full-time computer scientist with roots in the Rheingau, Germany. We both grew up around chickens, cocks and their hen house. Naturally, there were several chicken farmers in the neighbourhood. As children we were very interested in feeding the chickens, catching them or looking for eggs.
After several talks a few years ago, we decided to get to the bottom of the matter. Rooster, chickens, the hen house and species-appropriate chicken husbandry became our new project.
We want to document this project for us and other interested parties to allow everyone an easy start into keeping chickens. We will document pictures, tips and stories on this website. If you have sources of information or interesting and valuable thoughts about this topics, feel free to write us.
Have a good time,
Peter & Sascha
