Raising your own chickens can be very rewarding. If done correctly, you will receive a regular supply of fresh eggs, which do not compare to the store bought eggs. The eggs are very nutritious and great for baking, but best of all you know exactly what the chickens are fed and how they are raised. It is easy to quickly get to the point where you have more eggs than you can use. When raising chickens for eggs, it is important to understand how chickens lay eggs and how to correctly harvest and use them.

One of the biggest items to fill our landfill are disposable dishes, which are made from plastics and petroleum products.

Moths and Butterflies are very adaptive insects and it is believed they have been around for more than 250 million years. When they are first born, they take the shape of a caterpillar and only later transform into a flying insect.
Butterflies and Moths are amazing creatures, which can live in a wide variety of climates. Like bees, they often feed off of flowers and are responsible for helping spread pollen.
