There are a few items that new chicken keepers must make a priority to get before they get their chickens. It is best if you want to make sure that you’ve covered all bases and won’t run into any trouble when you introduce your chickens to their new home.
Are you thinking of adding chicken keeping to your set of skills? Yes? Then this article is for you. Congratulations on starting down this rewarding road.
Are you looking for a cosy chicken coop for your future chickens, then there are a few things you will have to keep in mind. Chickens are habitual creatures with certain needs and wants when it comes to their environment.
You may think that feeding, housing and watering your chickens would be as easy as caring for your dog or cat. Unfortunately, that is not the case for most of us. Choosing the correct waterer, coop and feeder can be quite serious business.
When you think of chickens, do you immediately get put off by the ruckus? Many people don’t like the idea of chickens since they feel like they will wreak havoc on their peace and quiet. What most people don’t realise, is that chickens can in fact be very quiet and gentle animals. The most noise they make is when an egg is laid unless of course, you have a rooster.
Chickens have the same basic needs as any other pet which means they need food, attention and shelter. Some chicken tasks will require daily attention, but there are also many tasks that only require weekly, monthly, seasonal or even yearly attention.
Keeping chickens can quickly become an addiction, while you swore that you will only have 4 chickens you now have so much more. Adding new breeds is a fantasy constantly circulating around your mind, but unfortunately, there are a few limits like space.
