Bio: Khrysti Smyth Barry (AKA The Chickeness) has been an urban backyard chicken farmer since 2009 and is the founder of 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 including classes, chicken care trainings, coop and chicken consultations, chicken brokering, help with permits, and occasionally even regular on-site coop maintenance and health check-up services. She has consulted for multiple Boston-area cities on their chicken-related zoning regulations, and lately she has been a strong advocate for chickens’ helpful role as garden work-birds – happily consuming all your weeds, bugs, thinned seedlings, dead leaves, grass cuttings, etc., and turning it all into amazing compost – while still adding delicious and healthy egg protein to your homegrown bounty.
