Raising Chickens in your backyard in the city or suburbs is a great way to build community. The fresh eggs are a great food source and taste much better than a store bought egg!
You will need to know what to do through the various stages of their lives:
Bringing home the chicks - Chickens are resilient birds and can be brought home shortly after hatching! The best time is usually in the spring. Local feed stores are usually filled with baby chicks. You will need to know about the care and feeding of baby chicks.
The young adult chicken- not as troublesome as your teenager but needs some guidance and good food and shelter. They’ll be looking around for a place to roost and lay their eggs.
The egg layer is just that -the chickens that lay the eggs. Eggs are everything!
And of course for your viewing entertainment …what would a site on chickens be without a video of a yodeling chicken herder…
