Meet Alana

Alana is 8 and lives in a suburban neighborhood in San Diego. She has 5 egg-laying chickens that she has helped raise since they were tiny chicks.

Do not assume that raising chickens in the 21st century is a tedious, stinky project.

Alana lives in a beautiful home with a beautiful garden and these chickens live in a designer chicken coop that protects them from predators and extreme weather. Alana’s family feeds them organic chicken feed, organic food scraps, and organic garden clippings.

In return, they offer healthy, beautiful eggs on a daily basis. This is the first springtime basket Alana brought to me as a gift when she was younger. No one can improve on Nature!
