Chicken Coops for Renters

If you do not currently own your home, and are renting, be sure to check with your landlord before even bringing your pets home. If your landlord is fine with the idea, you’ll want to be sure that you do not build a permanent fixture, and that your coop can be easily relocated if need be. Next, consider how much space you can designate for your chickens, and be sure that the layout of the coop can accommodate however big your flock may be. Lastly, be sure your coop, even though it may not be as sturdy as a permanent fixture may be, is just as safe. Perhaps putting a temporary fence around your coop would also be ideal to provide a little bit of extra safety.

Chicken Houses Plus is a great online resource to help you pick the perfect coop.

 
 

Raising Chicken for Food

If you’ve decided to raise your own chickens for food, here are a few tips to follow.

Avoid steroids and other chemicals for your flock. Although these materials may make your chickens larger, it is unhealthy for you. Any unnecessary chemicals can also cause damage to your birds as well.

If you are gathering eggs, be sure to handle with care. Any eggs that are fertilized do not wash as this could damage the baby chick. Check local and state standards for any eggs that you plan to sell. There are many rules and regulations regarding the proper handling and care for food being sold on the market.

Additionally, any meat you plan on selling, be sure to check the regulations as well. If you are planning on selling organically, these rules and regulations are a lot stricter than others. Follow any and all rules from the very beginning, and you’re sure to have a quick turnover and sale.

Wanting to sell organic chickens? Tips.

For those who are choosing to raise chickens organically for their own purposes, and not for market, take into consideration all that is needed for sale. Your chickens should be fed an organic diet, and allowed to free range.

 It is entirely up to the owner whether or not they feel their chickens should be vaccinated or should receive medicine when sick. A free range chicken on a healthy diet is unlikely to get sick. The best organic chicken is ultimately a happy chicken. Keep your flock healthy and happy by allowing them daily access to a pasture, as well as giving them attention.

Many do not realize that chickens are very social creature and enjoy the human interaction, especially once they become comfortable with that human. Be sure to take all safety measures before allowing your flock to free range to protect against unwanted predators, although allowed to free range the flock should still be monitored.

Additionally, be sure your flock has a coop or house to retire too, or flee to if they feel threatened. And last but not least, always make sure your flock has access to water, and be sure to supply fresh and clean water daily as many contaminants and bacteria build up in water left unattended.
