How To Raise Your Own
Backyard Chickens

You’ve probably already looked online about keeping chickens so you know that raising your own backyard chickens saves you money on grocery bills as your hens supply you with fresh healthy eggs every day. Unfortunately though, you’re uncertain about raising chickens and it seems confusing and even overwhelming!

Most people who raise their own backyard chickens struggle because they don’t have the right information, such as how to choose the right breeds for you, how to prevent common chicken illness and how to feed them for optimal egg laying. Raising chickens can be difficult, but it doesn’t have to be. How easy would it be if you knew how to care for them properly and how to prevent mistakes before they even happen?

Many people also have ideas about what their dream chicken coop would look like, but don’t have access to proven plans which have been used time and time again to build cost effective chicken coops.

The Benefits of Keeping Backyard Chickens

Over the last decade the popularity of raising backyard chickens has exploded as more and more people realise the benefits of raising their own chickens.

Forget trips down to the shop to pick up eggs, imagine the convenience of just nipping out into your garden to pick up some freshly laid eggs; what a way to start your day! Over the last several years we’ve taught thousands of people how to raise their own chickens. These people now raise healthy, happy hens and have a constant supply of fresh eggs every day!

Not only can you be sure of a daily supply of fresh eggs, but you can also be sure to save a dollar or two along the way. They are also very clever, entertaining animals and you will definitely get attached to your chickens and enjoy getting to know each one of their personalities.
