Do you want to learn how to raise chickens? Then keep reading... Why should you be interested in raising chickens in your backyard? Raising chickens can be fun and even profitable! Many people want to regain control over the food that they eat and raising their own chickens for eggs is one way to do just that! Fresh, all-natural eggs are much healthier and taste better than store bought eggs. Also, chickens are great to have around for bug control! Chickens are very easy to care for and will reward you many times over in eggs and entertainment. It is easy to start a little flock of chickens, and once you have everything set up, their care is minimal. Raising chickens can be a great family project to teach your kids about taking care of animals, and everyone will have fun. Also, you will have fresh, all-natural eggs, which really do taste much better than those things you have been buying at the supermarket! Chickens are fun to have around. They have endearing personalities (some breeds are friendlier than other breeds) and they will provide you with lots of eggs. Depending on the breed of chicken, eggs will be either white or brown (varying shades of light to dark) or blue or green. The different colored eggs do not taste different from one another. This book covers Why Raise Chickens How Much Space the Chickens Need to be Raised Choosing a Coop Chicken Breeds and How to Choose the Most Suitable One Feeding the Chickens Types of Alimentation Care and Chicken maintenance Diseases Behaviour and Chicken Psychology Eggs Chicken Laws Tips for Raising Chickens And much more! Organic eggs come from feeding organic chicken feed. All natural, organic eggs not only taste better than the store-bought kind, but they are healthier for you. Eggs from free-roaming chickens that eat grass are lower in cholesterol and higher in Omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin E. They will have a deep yellow/orange yolk. Once you eat one of these eggs, you will never want to buy eggs at the supermarket again! Chickens in your backyard do more than provide you with eggs. They are a pest control army! Forget about costly and possibly dangerous lawn chemicals--turn a flock of chickens loose in your yard and watch them go to work. They will gladly take out any garden pest that they come across. I even saw one of my chickens eat a scorpion! And their droppings make excellent fertilizer. Because chickens eat grass, they will even keep your mowing to a minimum! Chickens will even take care of your yard waste. Just offer your chickens a pile of weeds and yard debris and they will take care of it. You will not be required to bag it up and remove it. Just be absolutely sure pesticides have not been used on the plants! My favorite thing about chicken keeping is that they eat leftovers. They will eat just about anything, but even so, there are certain things that you do not want to feed your chickens, especially onions or garlic, as that will make the eggs taste odd.
