Raising poultry for backyard flocks
Chickens are just the best farm animals to have or great to have in the back yard. They keep insect population down. They make great fertilizer – that you implement into your compost. You dont have to walk them but they do require fresh water. Most breeds are pretty hard and can with stand any weather providing they have shade and shelter during the extreme heat or bitter coldness. They are fun to watch and you will find out each chicken has it’s own personality.

You can find chickens anywhere – especially if you live outside of the city limits. People sell them on craigslist or even Facebook. Chickens are pretty easy to find these days. Chick you can find in any feed store around spring time – yep easter time. Depending on breed – they should cost too much.

Those chickens will lay everyday – there is no off switch on the chickens. Unless there is extreme cold weather or extreme heat.
