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.

Do you know How to Sex Chickens with Feathers? Well it's Easy

Sexing baby chickens is not a very glamorous job but a necessary one. Wait until your chickens have lost their fuzz. Scoop up a group of feathers at the neck with an index card and examine the ends of the feathers. Rounded ends represent female and pointed ends are male. You can also pick up your chicken by the nap of the neck and lift off the ground. If the feet hang down, it is probably a male but if the feet are tucked up close to the body, it is a female.

 
 

Raising Chickens in a City Environment

Before attempting to raise chickens in a city please check your city ordinances first to find out important laws that you may not know! Some cities may not allow chickens. Also, although your city may allow chickens, some neighborhoods may have strict rules concerning properties, so make sure to check everything out first before proceeding.

When raising chickens in a city make sure you can provide plenty of area for chickens to roam free when necessary. You’ll want to be sure that you have the proper materials to keep the area clean, and healthy. Lastly, make sure your chickens get plenty of fresh water, and food.

The first step to raising chickens when living in the city is to find the ideal place to house them.  Many online stores offer chicken houses that are affordable as well as a convenient size. Be sure to choose a place that is not only convenient, but is also safe and in a covered area. You’ll want to be sure to secure your chicken coop as best as possible to avoid natural predators.

Now, choose the perfect coop. This can be something as fun as a family project, to something as simple as just purchasing the coop. You’ll want to decide the size of the coop first to make sure your chickens will be comfortable. The more chickens you plan to have, the larger the coop, but also keep in mind the size of the area you have available for your chickens. If you plan to allow your chickens to free range, be sure to devote enough space for them to do so. Also, when free ranging make sure you have some form of fenced in area to make sure your chickens do not wander, and are safe.

Once you have your coop, now is the time to decide whether or not you want to buy adult chickens, or baby chicks. As chicks these can be an ideal for a family with children as it offers your child a fun project of learning and responsibility. Many site also offer fertilized eggs that you can hatch and raise from birth. If you’d prefer not to raise baby chicks, there are also many ways to adopt an adult chicken for your own. Make sure when choosing your chicken you decide just what type you’d like as there are multiple types of chickens available from large to small. Be sure to get the proper information on feeding and care taking. If you plan on feeding your chickens special feed be sure to do your research first. Do your research before making your final purchase; you’ll want to be as informed as possible.

As your chickens grow they’ll not only offer you eggs, they’ll also offer you companionship. Many do not know that chickens have their own unique personalities and, even in a city setting, with proper care taking these creatures can flourish to great pets, and a great learning experience for young children to care for their own hen.
