Recommendations for First-Time Farmers


Check the legality of owning poultry in your area. Some places may have restrictions on the number of chickens you can keep or the type of house you can build.

Choose the right breed for your purpose and climate. Some breeds are good for eggs, some for meat, and some for both. Some breeds do better in hot or cold weather than others. You can research different breeds online or ask a local hatchery for advice.

floor raising

Build a good house for the birds with all the required facilities. Each bird should have at least 4 square feet of floor space in the coop and 8 square feet in the run. The coop should have a roost, a nest box, a feeder, a waterer, and a ventilation system. The run should have a fence to protect the chickens from predators and a cover to provide shade and shelter from rain.

Feed your chickens a well-balanced diet. Adult birds need at least 16% protein in their feed. Chicks need feed starter crumbles for at least the first 4 weeks. You can also give your chickens treats like fruits, vegetables, and mealworms, but not more than 10% of their daily intake.

Vaccinate your chickens timely and control insect and parasite infestations. This will help prevent diseases and infections that can affect your production and profits.

Collect and store your eggs properly. You can expect your chickens to start laying eggs when they are about 6 months old, depending on the breed. You should collect the eggs at least once a day and store them in the refrigerator or a cool place. You can also wash the eggs with warm water and mild soap if they are dirty, but this will remove the natural protective coating and make them spoil faster.
