Jodi Eineichner, backyard flock marketing manager with Purina Animal Nutrition, says the new resource center was created to assist in each step of the chicken raising journey.

“Raising backyard chickens comes with many fun decisions: Which breed is best for me? What should my coop look like? How can I keep my flock healthy?” she says. “We created the Purina Poultry Pinterest page as another meeting place for America’s backyard chicken raisers, so they can easily find information as their birds grow.”
