Raising chickens is a big commitment. You need shelter, feed, water, fresh bedding and room for them to roam around. Laying hens can be expected to live anywhere from five to twenty years but hey will only lay eggs for a portion of their lifetime. Will you retire the hens to pasture or put them in the soup pot? There’s a lot to consider before you commit to raising chickens.
We think that raising chickens is a worthwhile endeavour. Nothing beats farm fresh eggs and the quirky antics of chickens. It teaches youngsters about where food comes from and to value it and chickens can provide a family with food security during hard times. We also believe that being prepared is a smart decision because an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Being a few steps ahead of those little chicks as they rapidly morph into into gangly teenage punks, bossy hens and roosterish roosters will save you a LOT of time and unpleasantness down the road.
