Chicken Round Up

Chicken Round Up

Everyone likes chickens, right?  I mean, really!? Yeah…that’s what I thought!

So, I’ve gotten together with six other bloggers to bring you a big fat Chicken Round Up!  My contribution to the Round Up, The Care and Keeping of Backyard Chickens was posted here last week, so now it’s time to bring you the rest of the fantastic posts!  Here’s a little peek into how other urban farmers and full-on homesteaders  take care of their chickens…

    I love how so many homestead bloggers I follow are posting about chickens and sharing their original expectations and reality. This is my first year with chickens and two have begun laying so far. I read a lot about keeping chickens for many years and quickly found that experience is the best teacher.
