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.

The Benefits of Growing your Own Food in your Backyard

Whether you are looking for a way to save money, be healthier, prepare for tough economical times, or simply have better tasting food, growing your own food in your backyard is a wonderful idea. There are just so many things that you could be growing on your own. You will save an incredible amount of money and you will also find that your food will taste a lot better. Since you are growing the food yourself you know that you are safe from pesticides and other harmful chemicals that are often used on larger commercial farms.

Another important thing to look into is that of raising your own chickens. There are wonderful benefits that come from raising your own chickens. You can have fresh eggs from the laying hens and meat when the time is appropriate. Your organic chickens will provide you will a lot of nutrition and protein. Since you will have so many chickens running around, it is important to make sure that you are giving them proper shelter in order to lay their eggs.

It is also important to make sure that you are feeding your chickens only the best and the healthiest food that you can find. After all, you will be eating their eggs and their meat so it is important to make sure that only things you would feel safe eating are given to the hens to eat. A great way to go about this is to dedicate a section of your garden to foods that will be for the chickens to eat. This will be your chicken garden.

The chicken garden will supply your chickens with all of the nutrients they need in order to produce high quality eggs and to be truly delicious and healthy to eat later on. In a matter of no time at all you will have yourself an array of food to pick from. If things ever get rough and you do not have much else to count on, you will at least know that you have eggs, meat, and vegetables from your garden to live off of. And the food from your chicken garden will be the food you use to help feed the chickens so you will not have to worry about spending an overload of money on feeding the chickens.

Make your garden as small or large as you would like. Just make sure that you are placing the garden a good bit away from your organic chickens or you may find them snacking on the plants that you would rather keep for your own food. You also want to make sure that you are planting your chicken garden where there is fresh soil and where there is room to expand. Even if you feel as though you will never want a larger garden, you really need to make sure that you are giving yourself the option should it ever come to that point.

Within no time at all you will be proud to say that you are truly self sufficient now. You will have everything you need in case of rough times and you are prepared for anything now.
