Get started raising chickens with expert guidance in our beginner's guide. Essential tips for success on your chicken-raising journey.
Start slow when you are getting started raising chickens.
What kind of chicken you want is going to determine how many chickens you want to get.
The bigger the bird the more: – feed you will need – space you will need – more time you may have to give them
A good rule of thumb is that regular-sized chickens benefit from at least three to five square feet of coop space per chicken if they have access to the outdoors.
Chickens will slow down their laying in the colder months, and while they molt. You can add a light to their coop to simulate longer days to keep them laying.
