What are your intentions?
People raise chickens for many reasons. But if you are not sure, try to decide in advance why you want to raise chickens. The three main reasons include; egg layers, meat birds and pet/show chickens. Each takes slightly different housing and care requirements. It’s essential to provide your birds a safe, comfortable place for them to live.
Raising chickens isn't as complicated or demanding as you might think. Chickens provide natural, chemical free -eggs and weed control for your yard. They manufacture some of the greatest natural fertilizer for your garden. Check with your local city or county ordinances and homeowner's association to be sure you’re allowed to house chickens and it’s a good idea to make your neighbors aware of your new farming endeavor (the promise of free farm-fresh eggs is a nice token). So which comes first – the chicken or the coop. If you’re going to raise chickens, you’ll need a home for them that stimulates healthful laying conditions and keeps your chickens safe and comfortable.
