In a way this post is a mild rant. Here we try to give lots of great tips on becoming more Self Sufficient and one of those ways is by keeping Chickens.
While I know there are some great E-Books there are also some dodgy ones. For some reason Chickens seem to be one topic that has generated lots of them. Here we give the information we know for FREE.
A classic I came across was an E-Book that for $10 or so would tell you how to get the maximum number of Eggs from your Chicken in a year.
Want to know how to do it?
Buy A Chicken!!!!!!!!!!
Buy A Lightbulb!!!!!!!
Seriously. Don’t pay $10 for that type of information.
Chickens Not Laying?
If your Chicken is not laying then it is either too young, too old, the hours of daylight are too short, it is molting or the feed is not of sufficient nutritional value. You can only do anything about the latter two. For the best Chicken egg laying supply some artificial light to fool the Chicken in to thinking the days are still long and it will continue to lay. Make sure you feed it a correct mix with some extra goodies like Cabbage and Grass and the nutrition side should be taken care of.
If you think the info is worth $10 then feel free to send it to us!
Here are the answers to some other Questions some people want paying for:
How Many Eggs Chicken Lay?
Who knows. No one can be exact. It depends on the breed and the individual Chicken. Each Chicken is born with a predetermined number of Eggs it will lay. There is no exact number. If an average Chicken lays roughly five eggs a week for about two years you can work it out from there. Let’s just say a Chicken is well worth the initial investment.
How Many Eggs Can A Chicken Lay In A Day?
One. Chickens lay an Egg, or less, a day, when they are in their prime. As they get older this number will start to decrease. Two to three years is normally the timespan for regular laying and then it tapers off quite dramatically the older they get.
Anyway, mini rant over. If you have any chicken related questions then feel free to ask.
What? You haven’t got any Chickens yet? You are missing out!
For a more self sufficient future
