So you want to raise chickens. Here are a few tips to get you started. Then go over to my post about the 5 Things I learned AFTER Getting Chickens. You’re welcome, in advance, for saving you a ton of trouble.
#1 Is it Legal
If you are in the country, like we are, then you are probably fine. If you are in the suburbs, and you want to raise a couple of chicks in your backyard, you should check with your local laws first. Can you have them? How many can you have? Are Rooster’s okay?
I would tell you where this would be, but, honestly I am clueless. Maybe the courthouse? Also, check your neighborhood rules or homeowners association bi-laws
