What You Should Know BEFORE You Buy a Chicken
Chicken Tips from Mrs. chicken
1. If you are getting chickens for the eggs,CHICKENS HARDLY LAY EGGS IN THE WINTER,production is very low if at all.
2.The best time to buy chickens is in the winter because of point number 1, but keep in mind the cost of food.
3.How much space does a chicken need? 1 chicken needs 3-4 square feet. so 2 chickens would need 6 square feet. Our Chicken Poultry Coop Rabbit Hutch for 2 chickens at the bottom of this page is perfect for 2 chickens
Light, they love it
Warm temp(65 degrees at least for laying eggs)
Feed each chicken a handful of food twice a day. they will eat all you give so try not to over feed.Under feed them and they may go on strike and lay less eggs(believe me I have had this happen).
Water.Keep the water clean or they may not drink it. the waterer below is a good one I suggest.
5.Chicken poo is great fertilizer so start gardening and get one of our green houses!
