CompanyYardbirds Backyard Chickens
Personal BioI have been an urban backyard chicken farmer and consultant since 2009, helping nearly 200 families and well over 1500 birds through my company Yardbirds Backyard Chickens. With a lifetime of animal husbandry, five years as a veterinary technician, and two degrees in Wildlife Ecology, Khrysti offers a wide range of services and information. I have consulted for multiple Boston-area cities on chicken-related zoning, and lately have been a strong advocate for chickens' helpful role as garden work-birds – they happily consume all your weeds, bugs, thinned seedlings, dead leaves, grass cuttings, etc., and turn it all into eggs and amazing compost!
Business Description We can help you with nearly anything and everything backyard-chicken-related. Need chickens or coop design consultation? We can help with that. Need to rehome some of your flock, get help with your permitting, or have me teach a class for your town, club, or group? Yep, we do that too. In select cases we can even install a full coop and run for you, either as an upgrade for an existing flock or with a new crew of ladies! Consultations on birds and coops can be provided remotely for anyone pretty much anywhere. Live birds, coops, on-site consultations, and classes may have additional travel time&fees depending on distance from central/western MA. Please send us an email at with any questions or to schedule a consultation, and we'll take it from there!
