Backyard Chickens - An Urban Farm Remodel?

You might be thinking, what does raising chicken have to do with home remodeling? Well if you want to add a "farm" feel to your urban (or not urban) home try adding some chickens and a fancy chicken coop to your yard. Urban chicken farming has become very popular in recent years....so join the trend and get fresh eggs. And you can say your yard is a farm!
 
Why raise chickens? Chickens provide you with a continuous supply of home grown, fresh eggs that are tasteful and nutritious. As well, they  produce quality, nitrogen-rich fertilizer and provide chemical-free bug and weed control. Chickens are also fairly easy and inexpensive to maintain. A hobby of tending chickens can give you that "back to nature" feel, is a great educational experience for your children, and can be just darn fun.
 
  Raising your own chickens means that they will be "free range" chickens; they roam around as they please and are not cramped in dark quarters like commercial chickens where they are inhumanely treated. You can also choose to raise your hens organically by feeding them organic feed only (no regular feed or animal by-products) and by not using any antibiotics except in extreme emergencies where the chicken's health is at risk.
 
   Before raising chickens, check your local chicken laws. Call your local animal control office or local municipality and ask what the laws are in your area regarding owning chickens. Some cities may limit the number of chickens you can have on a given amount of land. Four chickens should be sufficient for a steady supply of eggs.
 
   Next you will want to choose your chickens. You can buy grown chickens or you can raise them from chicks. Local Feed Stores often carry a variety of day old chicks around Spring time. You can also find local chicken farmers. Ask around at farmers markets, health food stores and feed supply stores. Check the classifieds for a livestock section in your newspaper or check online for chicken farmers. Chickens come in large sizes and "bantam" sizes. Bantam sizes are smaller chickens (like "toy" breeds for dogs), and are ideal to use for laying eggs. Larger hens are egg layers also as well as used for meat. Good choices of urban chickens are the Buff Orpington, Rhode Island Reds, Barred Plymouth Rocks and Cochin bantams. Your local chicken farmers will know the right breeds for your area's climate.
 
   Before you buy your chickens have their home and food ready for them. Chickens need room to roam and a shelter for laying eggs, sleeping and bad weather days. You can build a simple or elaborate coop. A good rule of thumb is about 2-3 square feet per chicken inside the hen house and 4-5 square feet per chicken in an outside run.  The coop should have a nesting box lined with straw where the hens can lay their eggs, and the floor of the coop should be lined with wood shavings like pine or cedar chips.
