Keeping chickens is an absolute pleasure, but for many, the lack of experience combined with the fear of taking that first step holds them back. For many parents, the endeavor is so new and foreign. They feel the added anxiety of not appearing knowledgeable in front of their kids and subsequently letting them down when it doesn’t work out.
When you lack experience, you worry that you might not pick the right coop or the right chicken breed, and in turn you’ll soon face serious problems that perhaps you could have avoided. It is true that many first-time chicken keepers experience a myriad array of problems within their first year, mostly due to lack of knowledge, but this doesn’t have to be you.
Knowledge is power. Chicken keeping can be such a rewarding experience if you make the effort to learn and prepare. I put this site together so that you will be able to relax and enjoy yourself knowing that everything was done right and is now in place for the arrival of your new flock.
