Living sustainably or living “green” means to live in such a way that you reduce your personal impact on the environment. One easy way to decrease your carbon footprint is to eliminate your need to go anywhere but your backyard for the eggs, vegetables and herbs that you eat! Start your backyard chicken farming with iChickens E-Publication: Raising Amazing Chicks; The First Seven Days 

Here at iChicken, we support the 10 meter diet: that is, we believe that you should do your best to limit what you eat to what is within 10 meters of where you live. That’s not always possible, depending on where you live and what your space constraints are, but everyone can make at least one or two small changes to bring your food closer to your back door. Backyard chicken farming is a great way to accomplish this goal.
