What No One Tells You About Chickens

Chickens Are an Investment

Chickens are a bit of an investment. When we first got chickens, we got baby chicks. We thought, the chickens are only $1.99 each! Easy start up. It turns out you need special water dispensers, feeders and a place to safely keep them. We bought a plastic bin, that then needed to be upgraded to bigger and bigger sizes. You also need wood chips and a heater. Luckily, once you get all of these things you can use them again for your next batch of chicks. Once the chickens get bigger, you'll need a regular chicken coop, wire to keep them a yard, straw and bigger feeders and a bigger water dispenser.

Chickens Are Funny

Chickens are so funny. They're just goofy. Try feeding them cooked spaghetti noodles and watch them run around stealing them from each other. If you socialize them when they are little, they will run up and give you love later on. They cackle and laugh at each other, get stuck dust holes and get run over by their friends. They're just goofy little birds and so sweet! Give them some chicken toys and build them a cheap playground out of 1:1's and they'll entertain themselves for hours.

Chicken Math Exists

Have you ever heard of chicken math? If you haven't google it. Basically it means that you can't just buy 1 or 2 chickens. Once you buy 2, they become an addiction. We started with 6 and now we have 12 and we're about to add 6 more. Chickens are like Pringles, you can't have just one!
