About Us

Hi all!

We are Kat and Nick, founders of Chicken Fans and massive animal lovers. But there’s more to the Chicken Fans community than the two of us. The contribution of chicken lovers worldwide, like yourself, makes this website continuously better.

Chickens are the most abused animals on the planet. In poultry farms worldwide, layer hens and broilers survive in extreme confinement with windowless sheds and artificial lightning. We can only encourage backyard chicken owners to care for their own chickens and get their own fresh eggs.

Our goal is to provide the community with as much correct, comprehensible information as possible. There is so much noise and disinformation on the internet; the last thing we need is confusion. We try to bridge the gap between the quick progress of scientific insights in the poultry world and the backyard chicken owners that care for their flocks.

Follow us on Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, or Mastodon. We LOVE to hear from you!

PS: We also have a Dutch / Belgian community. Visit us at kippen.be and join us!
