Let's talk chickens! Get my free "chicken digest"!

I have good news for you - you're in the right place!

Sometimes when you're starting out - or even when you've been raising chickens for a long time - it can feel a little overwhelming...

What they should eat, what they shouldn't eat, what kind of coop should they live in, how to know when they're poorly sick, how to keep them warm - or cool, how to make sure they lay the most nutritious eggs ... eeeek!

Don't worry. Raising chickens is not hard, it's lots of fun - and we will do it together!

My chickens start free-ranging from a very young age!

You'll know you're in the right place if...

You're attracted to the thought of a more natural way of living, even if you live in an urban area.

You like to give your family healthy, unprocessed food, and you want to know where it's come from.

You want to be sure that the information you're reading is accurate and based on properly researched studies - not just copied from some random blog.

You'd like your children to learn a sense of responsibility for other living things, and for the food they will eat in their future.

You have a busy, stressful, demanding life, and you'd like to add some quiet, quality de-stressing parts to it.

You like chickens. You don't know why - they just seem entertaining - and raising some hens in your backyard or garden might be fun!

You just know that when you do have your own flock, you'll be talking about them as "my girls" within no time.

You don't or can't have your own "girls" but you dream that some day, you will - and in the meantime, you'd like to learn.

Happy, happy, happy! 

I'm celebrating right along with you - because you've come to the place where happy chickens thrive!

Here's what you'll find on this site - and where to find it.

Quick links - find what you want here, or carry on reading!

Learn more about raising chickens before you start.

If you've not kept chickens before, the best place to start is to really examine whether they'd be a good fit for you and for your family - including finding out whether the place where you live will allow you to keep them!

From then on, preparation is the key. Here are some pages which will help develop your knowledge.

It's one thing to bring home a fluffy yellow chick. But chicks grow into noisy hens. Make sure chickens are right for you!

Be prepared - take the quiz!

You've decided to get chickens and need to know where to start.

These articles will make sure you know what you need.

See the beginner's guide

Not all chicken breeds are as friendly as others. Find out which are the best breeds for your family.

Which breeds are best for you?

So you'd like to incubate and hatch your own chicks?

Most people who keep chickens at some point decide they want to incubate and hatch their own.

This is probably what I'd call my particular area of expertise. I've been incubating and hatching chicks for over ten years now. I've been through it all - from the amazing sight of a chick developing in the egg, to watching it hatch 21 (or more) days later.

And the difficult parts, too. Dealing with weak and sick chicks, and sometimes having to cull those whose quality of life is very poor and never going to improve.

If raising your own from chicks is something you're interested in, you'll find these articles are a good place to start.

Before deciding to incubate, you need to make good decisions about the best available equipment to suit all your incubating needs.

Which equipment is best?

My free hatching course, designed to take the stress out of hatching for you! Describing what happens during all 28 days of incubation.

My paid for course about hatching. Ad free, detailed information in video, audio and text, and a private group.

Learn about raising adult chickens.

There's a lot to get to grips with when you first decide to keep chickens. A safe place for them to sleep, eat and exercise. How to make sure they're getting the right nutrients. How to keep them cool in summer and warm in winter. How to spot when they'e unwell and what to do about it...

Everything you'll find in these pages is based on my extensive reading and research, and has been tried and tested with my own flock. I keep away from "gossip" and stick to established facts so that you can be sure your chickens will be safe, too.

And should you want even more detail than I give, you'll be able to confirm my findings and read around subjects, too. I provide a list of respected sources at the end of all my informational articles.

Overall care and housing.

Month by month, step by step details about how to care for your chickens through the seasons. With free checklists for my newsletter group.

From the coop itself to roosts, nesting boxes and bedding - these articles will help you build your own ideal chicken house.

Food and drink.

Knowing what food and treats are good for chickens can be confusing and overwhelming at first.

These articles will lead you through the best food for chickens of all ages, and suggest a wide range of natural treats available to keep your flock healthy all year round.

All about what chickens should - and shouldn't - eat, from baby chick to adult.

What should chickens eat? 

Should chickens drink only water? What drink is best to keep them hydrated?

Keeping chickens healthy.

Generally speaking, chickens bring us much greater relief from stress than problems. But every so often, something comes along that we need to be able to deal with.

Better to be prepared well in advance rather than panic when it happens.

These pages will help get you started - and you'll find links on them to get to other pages which may be giving you a headache.

From baby chick illnesses to adult parasites and diseases: how to recognise, treat and prevent.

Keep your flock healthy

How to know whether you have rodents in your coop, and how to get rid of them before they bring disease to the flock.

Chickens are everybody's favourite meal. Learn how to tell which predators you may have and the best ways of preventing them.

Raising chickens for eggs!

Your girls' lovely fresh, delicious, healthy eggs will add up quickly!

It's one of the most amazing benefits of keeping backyard chickens - having beautiful, nutritious, fresh eggs every single day.

And the best part? You know exactly what's gone into them to keep them naturally healthy!

Eggs used to get a bad press - accused of building high cholesterol levels. But not any more - it's now recognised that this research was faulty - and backyard chicken eggs are far more nutritious than commercially produced.

So my eggy pages cover all that information, and more: keeping hens healthy to get the most nutritious eggs, egg nutrition, storage, health benefits and, of course, some of my favourite recipes.

How to make sure your hens produce the healthiest, most nutritious eggs.

I also have pages where you can share stories of your own flock. I love hearing all about them, so if you'd like to share, I'd be delighted!

Have you lost a much loved chicken? Leave your tribute here, and perhaps write a message of condolence for other people.

Here's what you won't find on my website:

Pin for later!

Lots of spammy product suggestions. I endorse something either because I have used it myself and love it, or I know someone I respect, who has. I recommend only items which I know will be of use to you and your flock. 

A place where harm is done to chickens. This is an important one to me. This site is about raising happy chickens. I don't talk about killing our girls and I don't talk about eating them - because I don't.  If you want a place that goes into details like that, that's fine - there are loads around the internet.

A place where you're afraid to ask a question because you think it's too silly. There are no silly questions. When it comes to keeping our girls happy, everything's important. I asked lots of basic  questions when I first started. In fact sometimes I was so clueless I didn't even know what to ask.

A place of know-it-all experts. My chickens are the experts, and they teach me. I read books and research papers which teach me things, and I take courses whenever I find one. I play an active part in forums and talk to people I live near, who have been raising their own hens for generations. I find out what works for others, then I try it out and I let you know what worked - and whether it might work for you.

In case you're wondering what my credentials are, to be able to give you good information about how to incubate, brood and raise chickens, I've written a page all about how I got to this point.

It's not a story of a country girl born and bred - far from it. I was born and raised in Liverpool, England - and there aren't many chickens there!

What it will show is that anyone can learn how to look after chickens - and have fun doing it. My aim is to use all the knowledge I've learned over my years of keeping a flock of chickens, and share it with you to so that you avoid the mistakes I made and enjoy all the benefits.

I'm so looking forward to the pleasure of your company - and to meeting your flock!
