Episode 140, We Get Chickens

Posted on the 13 March 2014 by Shrugger

Check out the latest addition to the growing family homestead here at Liberty Ridge--chickens!
Pictured are a few of our Cinnamon Queen chicks, delivered to us two weeks ago via the US Postal Service, none the worse for wear.
In this show I talk about:
  • What are the obvious--and not so obvious--benefits of having chickens?
  • Selecting the right breed for you
  • How many to get, and gender mix
  • Where to get your baby chicks
  • How to take care of baby chicks for the first few critical weeks
  • What to look for in a coop or chicken tractor
If you gotta homestead, you gotta have chickens!
P.S. Here is a picture of the coop/tractor, built by Penny Gonzales of Okie Critters:
