GETTING CHICKENS SETTLED
When you get your chickens home to the new coop or brooder, remember to leave them alone to settle down, and it's normal for lots of peeping & clucking as they are getting used to the new area.
It's a good idea to not make changes to the daily routine for your new chickens upon arrival, for "eggsample" keep your chickens on the same feed formula. And remember when moving chickens it can take them a few days to settle down and start laying eggs.
Mary Ann Fordyce explains how chickens can be used as currency as well as a food source during economically difficult times.
Austin, Texas - Mary Ann Fordyce has been raising chickens in her own backyard at the Blue Star Ranch for the past 14 years, a venture that was started out of sheer necessity in order to put food on the table. But Mary Ann quickly began to realize that her chicken hobby had tremendous financial possibilities. She now operates a lucrative business out of the Blue Star Ranch, teaching people how to grow and produce chickens, not just for meat and eggs, but also for a steady source of income.
“Chickens are a highly valuable resource,” says Mary Ann. “And in these uncertain times, there’s no better way to ensure the future of yourself and your family.”
