NEW SHOPPERS OF CHICKENS: BEWARE OF too-low prices for chickens. There are some chicken sellers that buy old egged-out hens from egg production factories and sell them as "new layers." In many cases, some dealers and growers of chickens will sell to you "young roosters" that look like hens! BEWARE! of these sellers -
Use caution when finding any sellers that advertise chickens for sale "REAL cheap!" This is not a good choice as many of these chickens are used up, older, or possibly sick battery hens that were considered the "cull" chickens sold to resellers in batches of unwanted old factory hens. BEWARE! SHOPPERS BEWARE!
Know your sellers track record and use wise judgement when shopping for chickens now as there are many new and just-starting chicken hobbyists. There is a HUGE chicken boom as there are financial changes ahead and our economy is changing. So, basically, anyone with an incubator, and a few fertile eggs who watch Youtube videos are likely to become self-proclaimed "experts" Be sure to purchase chickens from people that you trust and beware of many online "baby chicks" scams selling poultry. Most hatcheries are sold out for many months!
Sometimes, new sellers of chickens do not have a history of success. Know where your chicks/hens are from and how they are being raised! Make sure that you look at the facility where your chicks/hens are being raised. If potential sellers will not let you view the farm/barns or cages? This is a RED FLAG! Beware of this seller!

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.”
