Raising Chickens? A Great Adventure!

Why raise chickens?

  • Easy and inexpensive to maintain when you compare them to more conventional pets. Yes chickens are easy to raise and take care of once you’re past the first two weeks of age. Chickens just need a safe place to call home, like a coop or pen, fresh free choice feed and water and some attention from the family. They make great pets for a kid that wants a pet but does not want a lot of responsibility.
  • Eggs that are fresh, great-tasting & nutritious. Most laying breeds of chickens will give you about 5 eggs a week and will lay from six months of age to about 4 years.
  • Chemical-free bug and weed control. Chickens love to roam around there home, and the good thing is they don’t need a leash. Just teach them where there coop is and then open the door they will naturally roam and eat weeds and bugs and then return to their coop as evening approaches. Just make sure neighborhood dogs and predators cannot get at them easily.  
  • Manufacture the world’s best fertilizer, cleaning the coop can be a dirty job but take the muck and add to your garden or compost, you will have free fertilizer every month.
  • Fun & friendly pets with personality, each chicken has its own personality and you will notice that each chicken has its own way of doing things. Generally people come in for a few chicks and then return shortly to expand their flock because they love them so much.

 

So stop by the store and purchase your Christmas chickens, start raising them now and by spring you will have fresh eggs for breakfast!

    Hi, I took in some chicken (6) and a rooster to help a friend who was moving. It was rather impulsive on my part and I need to find them a home. Any ideas where they might be taken in and not killed? Thanks for any info you may have.
