Raising Chickens Polish Top Hat

We hatched our website in 2009 to share our knowledge and experience about chickens. This site contains tons of information that will help you get started. People who have never raised chickens often ask: Why do you want chickens?

These are a few of the reasons I talk about:

1. Chickens will provide you a supply of healthy fresh eggs

2. Living yard art

3. Fun hobby, whether hatching your own eggs or showing them

4. Chickens are excellent at pest control and weed eating, while providing free organic fertilizer

5. Chickens make good pets, they even make diapers for chickens(OMG)

6. Raising chickens teaches children respect and care for animals

7. The start-up cost of raising chickens is very reasonable

8. Chickens are just plain fun and a joy to be around

ASK A CHICKEN QUESTION

We strive to give you the best answer possible. We will have an answer to your question in 24 hours. If we do not answer your question in 24 hours we will give you a complete refund and still answer your question. On staff we have a vet tech with 25 years of experience raising chickens and other exotic birds.

We have many people who try and post answers in the comments and contact us section. We are very busy and try to answer all questions but asking a question in these two areas will not guarantee an answer.

To help with the cost of maintaining the site I am asking our visitors to make a small payment of $4.95 for each question submitted.
