I mean we could mention the fact that fresh eggs taste better than store bought eggs, that chickens in factory farms lead terrible lives, and that raising your own food is always a good idea. But just in case you aren’t convinced, let’s take a look at some reasons why you need chickens. (Did I mention they look funny when they run? Because they do.)
