Chickens


We spend an awful lot of time over here on chickens. Feeding them, coop cleaning duties, egg gathering, but mostly we watch them. They're hilarious! If you've ever been on the fence about whether to get chickens or not, I'm hoping that I can convince you today to jump right off that fence and find you some chickens. They are the best addition to this little family of ours and even though they're a truckload of work, I wouldn't trade it for anything.





This year, we are starting to see a surplus of eggs and we've been selling them, no big profits mind you, but the chickens now pay for their own feed, ka-ching! And then there's Matthew. Who knew we'd have a chicken whisperer for a son? He loves these chickens to pieces. I've even read studies of how beneficial a pet they are for special needs children, especially ones with Asperger's. Crazy, right? Chickens are awesome.




You don't have to live on a farm to be a chicken keeper either. A quarter acre's all you got? No problem. A few little egg layers in a coop with a small fenced in run area is just what you need. See? Chickens are for everyone {wink}! I'm just sayin', if you've ever thought about owning chickens, maybe this is your year of the chicken! Are you convinced? Are you on the way to the feed store right now? What's keepin' you? Get going!
xo,
Amy

  3. Adequate feeding is very important in running a poultry business and the birds lay eggs according to how well they are fed. As your business begins to grow, you may need to start-up your own feed mill, in order to maximize cost. Poultry Care Sunday
