I think out of everything homesteading related, chickens are probably my family’s favorite project. I know this sounds kind of funny, but chickens have great personalities and are very smart. Before we had chickens, I would have never thought of a chicken having a personality or being smart, but they are, plus they make good pets and can be very entertaining. I’ve had some interest shown and a quite a few questions asked about our chickens so I’ve decided to do a little series that covers everything about them. Some of the topics I’ve thought about covering are:
- Starting out with Chickens
- What breeds we have and how many
- Where they live and how they all get along
- Feeders and waterers we use
- What we feed them
- The roosters
- Raising chickens for meat
- Our broody hen
- Our breeding project
- Hatching chicks
My plan is to post a new All Things Chicken article each Thursday. If you have any other questions or topics you would like me to cover, let me know and I will include them on the list.

Be sure to check back on Thursday for my first All Things Chicken post!
