Raising Chickens – A Complete Guide from Chick to Dinner

chickensRaising a chicken is really not a hard task to do.  Some complicate things with adding math and adding temperatures you have to be in, however a chicken will take care of their self.  There are plenty of reasons why you would want to start raising your own flock from grow house abuse to the marketing nonsense companies use to confuse us.  This podcast is not reasons why to raise your own chickens but more of how to do so.  If you can care for a dog, you can care for a chicken.  There are a few things that you need to know before you get started.  This is why this is considered a complete series.

I have cared for chickens for the past 3 years.  I have seen my own amount of death, life, and culling.  There are short cuts and needs that most tend to leave out when discussing how to raise these birds.  During the podcast I mentioned setting up my coop and the YouTube video that I put together explaining it.  Click here to see Chicken Coop from Old Shed.  This is how I built mine with both comfort and safety in mind.
