Chickens could be the saviors humans need for the summer season

Every summer season brings a lot of fun activities in the woods, which means ticks galore.

Parents worried about their adventurous children contracting lyme disease, have brought life to a trend that shines rays of old life on the frontier: chicken coops.

While there have yet to be studies confirming chickens actually reduce tick populations, studies have confirmed this occurs with Guinea Fowl, and chickens are the next best thing.

Building a chicken coop can now be a bonding experience for the family, and a way to reduce the chance of getting lyme disease, which runs rampant in the tick population.

Your new pets will also produce your breakfast for life, free of charge.
