With an unforgiving drought, a cattle crisis spreads through Marathwada
In this video I discuss some of the benefits of having backyard chickens. About six months ago we decided that we were ready to buy some chickens and dive into animal husbandry in our backyard. While my wife and I had discussed this idea in the past we had always dismissed it since we live in a small suburban community. Although we are not in a big city and we do have enough room it just didn’t seem like something that would fit with our lifestyle or living environment. After all, what would the neighbors say? Don’t chickens smell? How much time would be invested in cleaning and feeding the chickens? How much does it cost to feed them, heat the coop, and provide overall care? These were many of the questions that my wife and I had that made us reluctant to get into owning chickens.
After having these chickens for about six months now my views and opinions have changed quite a bit. In this video I share some of my opinions about how the chickens have become a perfect fit into our family. If you have been thinking about getting into owning chickens I hope you find this encouraging!

Previously I have done a series called Space Chickens that combined Galacticraft and Chococraft in an adventure to bring Chickens to Space. With the help of rubysown from the mindcrack subreddit we have a new modpack with those same mods as well as a handful of other mods that will work with this theme. I hope you guys enjoy, I am super excited.

Never ever put new babies in with older hens. The big ones will always beat up the little ones and kill them. When you put chickens together they have to be the same size. Chickens don’t know age they just know size.
In the winter when you’re feeding whole corn, make double triple sure you have plenty of grit available at all times. It takes a lot of grit to grind up the whole corn.
De-worming your chickens is very important. Three times a year put a half cup of diatomaceous earth in the continuous feeder. Or use 1 tablespoon of diatomaceous per chicken in the continuous feeder.
Keep the water clean. If the water isn’t clean the chickens will get sick.
Make sure the coop has sunshine and shade. And they need good privacy in the nest area and sleeping area.
