Raising Chickens 101

So, you’d like to get started raising chickens? Be sure you’re ready to commit! Here’s the first post of a beginner’s guide. Let’s “start from scratch,” so to speak.

There’s a lot to like about raising your own chickens. The eggs are a real temptation—tastier and fresher than any store eggs and better for baking, too. The shells, along with the chicken poop, can be tossed right into the compost pile. Much of the day, the birds entertain themselves, picking at grass, worms, beetles, and all of the good things that go into making those yummy farm eggs.

Remember, though: Nothing good comes easy.

Here are the basics of raising chickens:
  • NYou’ll need a coop. It has to hold a feeder, a waterer and a nest box for every three hens. It should be large enough that you can stand in it to gather eggs and shovel manure.
  • NChickens need food (and water) daily, an adult chicken will consume around 2 pounds of feed per week.
  • NHens will lay through spring and summer and into the fall, as long as they have 12 to 14 hours of daylight, their rate of lay will drop off as the days get shorter. Expect to check for eggs morning and evening.
  • NPlan to clean your pen at least once a week.
  • NIf you go away, you need a reliable chicken-sitter.

What do I need to keep my chickens healthy and happy?
In addition to quality feed, there are a few other things you’ll need to keep your chickens healthy and happy. This includes a coop to protect them from predators and the elements, a secure outdoor run so they can get exercise, and clean water and bedding. We carry a selection of coops, runs, and other supplies to help you care for your chickens.
How do I introduce new chickens to my flock?
Introducing new chickens to an established flock can be tricky, but there are some tips that can help. It’s important to quarantine new chickens for a couple of weeks to ensure they’re healthy before introducing them to your flock. You can also try introducing them at night when the other chickens are sleeping, as this can minimize aggression. Our staff can provide more advice on introducing new chickens.
