Late summer, early fall is such a good time to learn how to raise chickens and start your backyard chicken coop.
The days are long so you have more hours outside to spend learning how to raise baby chicks.
It is also a great time to get things ready for the coming winter.

Setting up a tub for little baby chicks is a great project for the kids, who are off for the summer.
Kids thrive with outside activities.
I personally think kids and chickens are a good match.
Chickens are a great pet for kids and they live outside so no mess indoors for mama to clean up.
When supervised, even quite young kids can care for and enjoy chickens.
It is just a great family project.
My advice is to start off small, four chickens is a good number until you get the hang of things.
Second is make sure you have a very big coop.
The bigger the better and the less problems you will have down the road.
It is well worth the investment of money and time to build a big sturdy coop.
Learning what your chickens need to eat to be happy and healthy is simple and easy.
I have made lots of videos to help you with every aspect of raising chickens.
With some time and research spent building the coop and learning what to feed, every family can enjoy a back yard coop and have years of fun plus healthy fresh eggs.
