Your backyard can be the source of the best eggs and meat you've ever tasted. The answer is chickens-endearing birds that require but a modest outlay of time, space and food. As they learned to raise chickens, Gail Damerow and Rick Luttmann came to realize the need for a comprehensive but clear and nontechnical guide. Their book covers all the basics in a light and entertaining style, from housing and feeding through incubating, bringing up chicks, butchering, and raising chickens for show. Throughout Chickens in Your Backyard, Gail and Rick express their wonder at the personalities of chickens-the role of brash protector played by roosters, and the instinctive motherliness of the hens. Given some freedom and attention, these birds can become much more than the egg-and-meat machines of commercial hatcheries and broiler factories. Chickens provide backyard farmers with enjoyable pastime, as well as a supply of good food.

Do you love eggs and chickens? If yes, then you got to have your own flock of chickens in your backyard. Raising chickens in the city, is that even possible? Yes, it is possible. Chickens are the new favorite pets of many people. Some places don't allow you to keep chickens at homes, but the list of places who are relaxing their laws and ordinances is growing day by day. So, if you are a city dweller and would like to get your hands on some fresh eggs, keep a flock of your own hens. But why this interest in raising chickens? The reasons are simple. They are quite inexpensive to keep. It costs about $1-$10 to raise one hen. You will spend around $500 on an average on a coop. This is a one-time expenditure. Feeding them will cost around $5 per month. Keep around $10 per month unexpected expenses on raising 3 hens and that's it! You get to eat your own fresh eggs. You also know what the hens producing the eggs have been eating. So, compared to your factory farmed poultry and eggs you have a safer and healthier alternative. These eggs are also more nutritious and taste better than the eggs of battery hens. They contain a much higher content of vitamins A and E, beta-carotene, and folate. At the same time, the cholesterol and saturated fat found in the eggs of free-range hens is much lower than those of battery hens. Besides this, chickens are excellent pets for children. Their manure can be used for composting since it is high in nitrogen, potassium, and phosphorus. They will also eat up all the weeds, slugs and seeds leftover after you have harvested your vegetable garden along with various pests. In short, chickens are a wonderful pet, and even your small kid can take good care of them with a little bit of guidance from you. But the problem is where and how to start? Not to worry. Read this guide and you will know how and where to begin. You will learn everything from buying your coop and chickens to cleaning and storing your eggs in this guide. So, let's get started with your own flock of chickens!

A Beginner’s Guide to Poultry Farming in Your Backyard Raising Chickens for Eggs and Food Table of Contents Introduction It Is Just Chicken Feed Sustainable Poultry Feed Crop bound Chickens Best Natural Food for Chickens Hatching Chickens How to Make an Incubator Fresh Water Supply Nesting boxes Free Ranging Birds Dust baths and Shed Floor Covering Bumble Foot Building Your Own Chicken Coop Egg Production Raising Broilers for the Market Well Ventilated Coops Protecting chickens from Predators Conclusion The Truth about Growth Promoting Feed Author Bio Introduction Ever since man found out that it was extremely easy to have domesticated sources of food, reared right in his yard, millenniums ago, is it a wonder that poultry especially chicken farming is one of the best methods to get easy access to a good source of food for your family? There is absolutely no country in the world, except perhaps the Arctic regions, – where man has not reared ducks, chickens and other poultry for table purposes down the centuries. Apart from these being an easy source of eggs to eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day, you also knew that you would have a tough old rooster for dinner, when a large number of family members popped in unexpectedly, demanding sustenance. We are going to be concentrating on chicken farming, for domestic purposes in this book. You have this dream of raising chickens in your backyard. You are interested in a continuous supply of eggs, and the occasional chicken for your pot of a Sunday. Layers are those chickens, which are normally raised for egg production. The chickens which are going to go straight into the pot are called broilers. Since ancient times, human beings have been raising poultry for domestic purposes and also for marketing purposes. Poultry farming has been a part of rural life in the east down the centuries. All the kitchen waste was fed to the hens. These hens came under the 21st century poultry farming term – free ranging. That meant they were allowed to scratch about in the backyard, getting their fill of insects, worms, green vegetables, organic matter, and was it a wonder that they laid delicious, nutritious, and proteinaceous eggs? Every intelligent householder kept three or four hens depending on the size of his family, and he bought a cock from the market, when he needed chickens. Once a clutch of chickens was hatched, Cocky Locky went into the cook pot. One of the common mistakes made by new poultry farmers is buying a large number of birds, because they are not very clear about whether they want these words for home consumption or they want to trade in the eggs and poultry meat. Around 50 years ago, one of my father’s colleagues was facing this problem. He had this huge garden and backyard. He had heard about dad rearing poultry in that garden successfully. So he also wanted to experiment in this exciting new activity which would keep his family well supplied with eggs, and fresh meat. So the next time dad went visiting to his base on a tour, he asked dad the best way to raise birds without too much of a hassle. You are going to get these easy tips in the book.
