With the cost of eggs and chicken in the stores, and the uncertainty of exactly where they came from or what they have been fed, Id like to start raising my own chickens. But unlike gardening, I know very little about chickens. I know barbecue wings with ranch dressing make a great snack. And I know that I dont like my yolks runny. Beyond that, Im clueless. I have so many questions. What breed is best for egg layers? What breed is best for meat? What is the best method for raising them...free range or a coop? How well do the chicken tractors work? Are there any foods that a chicken shouldnt eat? How do you take care of them in the winter? I could do some research online and maybe get some answers. But Id prefer to hear from someone with first-hand experience.
Well, help has arrived! To get questions to these answers and many more, I have enlisted the help of Paul Wheaton. Many of you may know Paul from his extensive list of YouTube videos about rocket stoves. Tags: MHPgardener, Gardening, vegetables, Farming, Prepper Broadcasting.
