Are you ready for chickens?
It seems that everywhere you go, people are raising chickens. Mostly for their eggs, but some backyard farmers are even raising their own chickens for meat. As the world goes through a variety of changes, and food is becoming an issue, maybe we will go back to the old ways and everyone will have chickens.
Each hen provides 12 to 20 DOZEN eggs a year, for at least 3 years.
So in this course, we’re going to take a behind-the-scenes look at real chickens and having a real life with chickens. You’ll meet my flock, and we’re going to air all their dirty laundry.
What are some of the benefits of raising chickens? I’m so glad you asked:
- They turn bugs (ticks, cutworms, mosquitoes, etc.) & weeds (grass, poison ivy, dandelion flowers) into eggs
- You will wake up at dawn every day
- They’re a great excuse not to go far from home
- You get an Easter egg hunt every day
- Plenty of opportunities for good exercise: walking around, lifting 50# bags of chicken feed and 40# bags of scratch feeds
- You can even save on TV: Watching chickens is much more fun that watching the news
- And they help with relaxation – watching animals, especially baby animals, raises your endorphins & oxytocin levels. They’re also a good focus for mindfulness meditations.
So, what are you waiting for? Let’s answer your questions right here, and you don’t have to hunt down information all over the internet. And you can get your information while watching my chickens!
Come join the party!
About me & my chickens: I free-range my chickens on the outskirts of an upstate NY city on a 1.3 acre rented home plot. I’ve tried using a chicken tractor, I’ve built a small coop, a tractor, a run, and now they live in my garage. I essentially have no neighbors, but I’m on a primary road/highway. I currently have 25 chickens including 2 new broods @ 7 chicks and 1 rooster. I’ve been taking video footage of my chickens for years and uploading it on YouTube, and decided that people might be interested in learning more about raising their own chickens in their backyard.
This course includes a small number of DIY (Do-It-Yourself) projects, which are entirely optional and only comprise a small portion of the course materials. They are rough guidelines and ideas for things you can do with upcycled or inexpensive materials that will save you money, time, or enhance your chicken experience. The projects may require tools, supplies, and some experience in handling them, or a friend or neighbor who is willing to help you out. But they are all optional, and you are responsible for your own safety.
