Backyard Gardener: Gardening with backyard poultry

Backyard poultry can be integral to successful home food production. A secure, fenced chicken coop and yard are essential (lower left). Water must be available and kept from freezing (note the electric heater, upper left). Nest boxes can be designed for external egg collection (upper right). Garden produce and kitchen scraps diversify the flock’s diet (lower right). (Jeff Schalau, University of Arizona/Courtesy)
