Few growing chickens in the playing area


We know people raising chickens in their backyard for many reasons. Few of them are:

- as pets

- fresh eggs

- meats

- just for fun (without clear reasons)


A long time ago, we have less than 10 chickens as pets at our backyard. Morning crowing sounds from roosters make us happy.


Off course, we have daily fresh eggs as a source of healthy protein. We love soft boiled (half cooked) eggs.


It is said that we should wash our hand with water and soap after handling raw (uncooked) eggs to prevent transmission of microorganism from egg shells to other items, especially other foods.


Little baby chickens, just for illustration


Other advantages to have chickens are:

- control bugs and weed on lawn

- source of fertilizers.

- in addition to eggs, chicken is a source of meat (home grown meat).


Chickens does not require a big space, a chicken need only:

- 1 square meter to grow and play

- 0.3 square meter for nesting and hatching eggs


People love certain chicken breed, these are 5 favorite breeds in the America, just for examples:

- Rhode Island red

- Wyandotte.

- Silkies

- Cochin

- Easter Eggers


Have you ever raised chicken in your backyard? What is your purpose?

  4. We raised about 12 Long Island Red chickens years ago. We moved into the country and decided to try it. It was nice to have fresh eggs in the morning - we are big egg people, and we even started selling eggs as we had so many. Unfortunately, the wild animals like them even more so we eventually gave them up. Have a great week!
