While raising chickens I’m learning new things everyday. Like, when it starts getting dark the alpha hen sounds off specific chirps to tell the flock it’s time to head in for the night…wow, mind blown!
Here’s a quick video of the young chicks I purchased early September.
1.Large styrofoam cooler
2.Glass from picture frame (window)
3.Temperature/ Humidity Monitor
5. 2-Outlet Socket Adapter
7.Rack (for eggs)
8. Protective mat.
For all of the homesteaders out there who love to do it yourself, here is my next project, an egg incubator! Stay tuned for more details.
I encourage everyone to raise chickens. The pros definitely outweigh the cons. Simply watching chickens will lower your stress levels and they provide delicious fresh eggs daily! Do your research, join community groups, watch YouTube videos, you will find that raising chickens isn’t that hard at all, honestly, it’s very rewarding! Good luck!!!
I have a “chicken math” issue 😂
I said I was contempt with 8 birds, then the chicken math kicked in, get 2 Buff Orpington’s to add a splash to the flock😂
