How To Raise Chickens FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Question - How does one raise chickens as a beginner?

Answer - Chickens are flock-oriented, so a good starter flock size is no fewer than 3 chickens. One nesting box can accommodate 3-4 hens. You should plan on a coop large enough to give each hen 3-5 square feet of floor space and 8 inches of roosting bar.

Question - What supplies do you require to raise chickens?

Answer - The major supplies are a waterer and feeder. Hanging waterers and feeders prevent the birds from roosting on them and keep the contents free of shavings and chicken poop.

Question - Is raising chickens cheaper than hatching eggs?

Answer - This can depend on your location and the price of eggs. If you spend $7 weekly for a dozen farmers market eggs, then yes, raising chickens probably will save you money.
