    Raising Chickens 101
    (The Basics)

    So, you’re interested in raising chickens? You’ve embarked on a fun an exciting journey! BYC (BackYardChickens) is FULL of great information. If your question isn’t answered in the main pages of the site then we promise there is an answer on our chicken forum.

    Here is our small setup. We only have 5 chickens but I always have 2 doz eggs in the fridge.

    Notice the outdoor pen we made out of pvc pipe. In trying to keep the cost down we only used the thick wall pvc on the outer frame and used thinwall in between. I had a tarp over the top and the first hard rain was to heavy and broke the thinwall pvc.

    We should have put a pitch on the roof side…

    Hey, we are learning too. It still keeps them in & it is light enough to move around & tall enough where we don’t have to crawl to get into it.

    They love when I let them out to free range but I have to stay out and watch them because the neighbor’s dog likes to come visiting

    Here are the chicken condos. We have 5 of these and can be used for chickens, quail, whatever.
