Our network of Countryside contributors have amassed decades of experience in poultry farming. They are incredibly passionate about their hobbies and businesses. Beyond backyard chickens, our contributors understand the nuances of guinea fowl breeds and how to raise guineas. They understand small duck breeds and important considerations for keeping turkeys for meat and even raising geese for meat.

You’ll enjoy hearing from knowledgeable contributors like Gail Damerow, who has written a fantastic line-up of resource books about poultry, including The Chicken Encyclopedia, The Chicken Health Handbook, Hatching & Brooding Your Own Chicks and Storey’s Guide to Raising Chickens. Don’t miss wonderful stories from Lisa Steele, founder of the popular blog FreshEggsDaily.com. Lisa’s site was recently recognized as a Top 25 backyard chickens blog. She’s also the author of celebrated books like Fresh Eggs Daily and Duck Eggs Daily. It’s been a scary year for poultry owners with the threat of avian flu. HenClass.com blogger Jeremy Chartier puts the spotlight on poultry health and disease with a special focus on avian influenza symptoms in birds.
