These days you can raise chickens almost anywhere and Oh Lardy’s Kelly Liston is proof of that. She lives in the middle of Phoenix, Arizona with her husband, three children, six hens and four chicks. Kristina Guerrero met up with her to find out about three convincing reasons everyone should have backyard chickens.

1. Choose Your Chicken

At any feed store where you live there are going to be the ability to get chickens. You can also buy online from places like myPetChicken where co-founder Derek Sasaki says they'll ship straight to your door. Believe it or not the U.S. Postal Service has been doing this for over 120 years.

2. Pet with Benefits

They eat weeds, they fertilize your yard with their poop, they're entertaining and they give you food. You're never stuck wondering whether your eggs are grade A, cage-free or all-natural because you're getting them straight from the source.

3. Take Care of Your Chickens

They are so easy to take care of! They just need a place to sleep at night, roost, a place to lay eggs and a place to forage or run around.
