Pickin' a Chicken

How do I pick the perfect chicken? Well, that's a good question. It really depends. Here are some questions, and hopefully answers:



1. Breed: What breed should I get? --It depends on where you live and why you want to own chickens. If you live in a small place with a small yard, you might want to get a small chicken. A Silkie might be the right choice for you. This cute, fluffy little bird is a small breed with a very good temperment, and are also fantastic mothers. If you have lots of room, and you want chickens for meat, get a breed like the White Rock. They are very large, full birds with plenty of meat. Look for books on breeds for more info.--



2. Personality: What personality should I get? --If you are buying lots of birds, it doesn't much matter. But, if you want a few chickens as pets, you want a chicken that is sweet. If you are raising chicks, love your chicks as much as possible. (This way they will grow up loving you!)--



3. Condition: Does condition matter? If so, how? --Condition plays a pretty big part. If you buy a skimpy, half-dead chicks, they might not live long. I once bought a bunch of chicks at a farmers market for almost nothing (they were in a box together all stuffy), and they ALL died!--



That's pretty much it. Just think about that.



Luv 2 pets,
