Backyard Chickens? Are You Thinking of Joining the Trend?

More and more homeowners are joining in the movement to raise chickens in their backyard. The eggs are fresh, tastier and plentiful during the summer months. Chickens are easy to care for, and if you raise all hens (no roosters) they are relatively quiet.

Before you consider raising chickens, make sure your county zoning and neighborhood restrictions allow it.

Now is the time that you want to start building your chicken coop so that it is ready by the time your chickens will be arriving. Carolina Fresh Farms on Celenese Rd. in Rock Hill usually starts selling peeps sometime in March. Below are a few links to help get you started.

Be creative when designing your coop. You do not need to put a lot of money into your chicken house. An old shed can be converted into a coop, old barnwood can be used to build a coop, and like below, an old dresser was converted into a coop.
