If you are contemplating getting backyard chickens for your home, consider these 3 things you need to know before you get them. I never knew this would be a question I would ever ask myself. Backyard chickens — for the girl from the city?
I am shaking my head because this is actually possible. My little family has moved to an island to be closer to my husband’s parents. My husband has been learning to build “stuff”, and he just built an awesome chicken coop for my mother-in-law.
He asked if we should start owning our own chickens and I had a look of disgust on my face, I immediately afterward realized that it isn’t such a bad idea.
Last year there was a little scare on the island where some Chinese stores were accused of selling “fake” eggs. This helped my husband’s case so much more.
Well, we may get some chickens soon so this article couldn’t come at a better time. This article was a reality check but mostly helped me to get prepared before getting our new chickens.
