AMERICUS, GA (WALB) – A man known as the chicken whisperer wants to convince you of the benefits of raising poultry in your back yard.

Andy Schneider stopped by Farmers Seed and Feed Service in Americus Thursday afternoon.

He's a leading expert on all things chicken and tours the country to educate people; he says raising chickens is one step toward a more a self-sufficient lifestyle.

"Obviously number one is egg production, they're great composters, then you have what comes out of the chicken which you can put in your compost for your garden, and there's the pet aspect," said Andy Schneider, The Chicken Whisperer.

He hosted his radio show "Backyard Poultry with the chicken whisperer" from Americus.
