The Backyard Farmer #4: Keeping Backyard Chickens in the City with Kelly Liston

Kelly Liston from Oh Lardy didn’t choose the chicken life, the chicken life chose her.

She’s a backyard chicken owner who lives in the city, and she’s not afraid to admit it.  Her friends & family all think she’s crazy, but she knows it’s just a matter of time before they become chicken-addicted, too. While most people put chicken stew on the menu when a chicken starts limping, Kelly takes hers to the vet and nurses it back to health. Now that’s real chicken dedication.

Do you have what it takes to raise chickens? Kelly shows us what an amazingly organic holistically natural chicken-owner looks like, and it’s totally doable. Aside from the occasional mysteriously dead chicken, Kelly is the expert on all things poultry.

Join us as Kelly shares with us her tips for working with city laws, choosing chicks or pullets, & creating superpowered egg layers through her fermented feed & meatloaf. Drunk chickens are the new thing, yo’.
