Overview

With the rising costs of meat and poultry, including eggs, more and more people are turning to raising chickens.

There are many varieties of chickens to raise. There are chickens that seem healthy but their egg-laying capacity is frail while other chickens give out lots of eggs every day. Before finally choosing the right chicken to raise, you have to consider a lot of things.

Many things must be taken into consideration before deciding which type of chicken you would like to raise. For example, what will be the place where your chickens will live? Do you have a big backyard? Is it wide enough to let your chosen number of chickens to roam?

There are cross breeds that can resist whatever the weather that may come. Production Reds is one of many typical examples. They can be tamed and are resistant to cold temperature. That is why, when you live in a place where it’s always cold, this breed is the right one for you.

Bantams can be a little bit hardheaded. They love to fly around, a very good reason why pens can be worthless. They are not good in laying eggs but if they do, their product is very small and is not advisable for selling.

The Pekins and Silkies are two of the best choices when it comes to laying eggs. If you are looking for a cheap egg-laying chicken, you can settle with a leghorn.

Looking for a chicken that’s sweet? Try cross breeding Cochin bantams. Breeds that came from a Cochin bantam’s bloodline are amazing because of certain qualities like sweetness, manners, and you have a very good breed that can easily be noticed in exhibitions.

Barred Plymouth Rocks are also one of the top breeds. It’s like the best deal ever, all in one package. Why? Well, during summer time, they lay almost every day.

Breeds that are unusual need more attention from the breeders so their breeds can survive.

This is why it is so important to choose the right chicken that you will raise.

And, that is where we come in!
