Raising Domesticated Chickens

Thinking of raising chickens? It’s certainly an exciting project! Whether you’re hatching chicks from eggs or buying young chickens known as pullets, raising chickens is a fun and educational endeavor.

Raising and taking care of chickens generally isn’t more difficult than raising and taking care of a dog, but there are some considerations which should be addressed before you decide to set out on such a venture. You need to determine if your site is zoned for chickens and ensure you have the proper housing and maintenance details squared away before you bring fertilized eggs or pullets onto your campus.

Before you begin your chicken project, you must select that number and type of chickens that best fit the unique needs and environment on your campus.
