So you are ready to start raising chicks? You’ve come to the right place! I’ve created a simple guide to raising chicks to get you started.
Our family loves raising chicks. I mean who can resist the small puffs of cuteness? I remember when we got out first 6 chicks; I felt completely unprepared. I had researched sure, but everything was either super complicated or lacking information. So I decided that I would share what we’ve learned first hand and make it a simple guide to raising chicks.
First Things First – Raising Chicks
Chicks don’t stay little for long. So the first thing to know when raising chicks is that you’ll need their outdoor coop and run ready ASAP.
- Legalities before you start. You’ve checked your city ordinances and you can legally have chickens. Or you’ve decided to be a rebel and raise them anyway (aka stealth chickens).
- You have a place on your property that will allow at least 4 square feet of coop space and 10 square feet of run/yard space per chicken.
