Many beginners, just like yourself, ask us questions about our chickens on a weekly basis. The topic of chickens is so vast, we could sit and talk forever about them! But, the number one question we get asked about Chickens is
Which breed of chicken should I get?
Well, if you’ve done any research at all you know that there are TONS to choose from. But before we can answer your question, we need to ask a few of our own. The number one question being why you want chickens. The reason this is so important is because some birds are good layers. Others, not so much. There are some breeds made for meat production, while others are meant to be companions. So, it helps us to steer you toward certain breeds if we know your needs and wants.
As we dive into chickens you’ll find there are many topics we cover in our articles.
- Breeds & Temperaments *Baby Chicks
- Feed *Incubation & Hatching
- Housing & Bedding *Broody Hens
- Predators *Roosters
- Sickness & Disease *Free Range vs Caged
