Heath Ward - co-founder of CityChick:
"As a child, I loved visiting my grandparents' farm in Alabama. Chasing chickens kept me busy since I could never catch them! Eggs cooking in the cast iron skillet is a sound that resonates with me today -- it is hard to beat the flavor of fresh eggs for breakfast.
Having chickens is no longer something that has to be experienced in the country - but in your very own backyard. We started City Chick to share the passion that we have for chickens to our friends and neighbors in the city of Atlanta. I love knowing where my food comes from every day, and I think you will too.
Chickens do so much more than provide us fresh eggs every day. They provide a fantastic pest control service, a great fertilizer service, and are just plain fun. If you have never seen a chicken run -- you are just missing out on one of nature's greatest comedies.
As an adult, I am happy to report I can easily catch all of my own chickens, and I still enjoy fresh eggs in the morning!"
Our commitment to the Atlanta community:
CityChick is a proud supporter of the Wylde Center Oakhurst Garden located in Decatur, GA. The Wylde Center offers educational programs, events, and greenspaces that actively engage youth, families and individuals in their environment, health and community, and that develop skills in environmental science, sustainable urban living, organic gardening, health, and nutrition Plus, they have chickens at two of their locations! So far, CityChick has donated over 5,400 lbs of organic feed to the chickens at the Wylde center!

We've donated our monthly chicken rentals to some great causes like fundraising for the Marcus Autism Center in Atlanta, ALS, and multiple schools that work with.
We Love our Chickens
Heath and his team were super professional and arrived with everything needed for our new feathered friends. They have thought of it all, from the awesome tractor coop and run, to food and bedding. They even spend time with you to educate and ensure you feel comfortable with your new flock. So far we have really enjoyed our 3 hens and we love how different their personalities are. Not to mention we get 2-3 of the best eggs we have ever had daily.
For anyone who has ever considered chickens, I would highly Recommend City Chick. I have also become very popular with my co-workers/neighbors who love getting overflow eggs. Really there have been no negatives and our experience so far has been nothing less than perfect.
