Before You Begin – A Year With Chickens

by | Feb 17, 2020 | A Year With Chickens, Featured

Today we’re launching the first episode in a year-long series, A Year With Chickens. We dedicate one episode per month to this series, covering what to expect when raising a chicken in that particular month. We’ll cover everything from the day you set eyes on that fluffball of peeping joy, to laying eggs and beyond. This month we’re going to talk about planning, prep, and everything you need to know before you begin

    Thanks for getting off to a good start. I am looking forward to your future episodes. I wish I lived in a rural area so I could enjoy more chickens starting with incubation, but alas, I live in a suburb with typical restrictions on chickens where I am maxed out with 6 hens, no roosters. However, that will not deter me from expanding my knowledge of chickens. Mine are beautiful. My best layers are the black copper maran, and the blue copper maran, which have large yellow orange yokes with little clear white whatever it is called, and have very hard shells. I did not know that the four other chickens would stop laying during the summer and early fall particularly during molting. That was a surprise. Fortunately, they are beginning to lay all but the buff orpington which likes to set a lot. She would make a good mom.
