In an effort to promote responsible pet ownership, Broomfield Animal Services worked in partnership with Colorado State University to provide useful information regarding raising backyard chickens. It is our hope that this information will assist you in making informed decisions about chickens. Raising backyard chickens involves a big commitment, and we trust this commitment will be taken seriously. A Beginner's Guide to Backyard Chickens is an excellent resource for Broomfield residents considering housing chickens on their property.
