Brown City Elevator Chicken Catalog

Tired of being a food consumer? Be a food producer! By keeping backyard chickens you have the benefit of knowing exactly where your eggs come from. You will know what the chicken has eaten, it’s living conditions, and how it was treated!
Some added bonuses of raising chickens in addition to their eggs:
  • Fresh food tastes better, it doesn’t get more fresh than right from your backyard
  • Chicken manure is high in nitrogen and makes for a great fertilizer
  • Natural pest/bug control
  • Personal entertainment and fun!
