My name is Eddie Skinner. The joy of keeping chickens is a blog about raising backyard chickens. I provide information on my experiences with raising backyard hens and the benefits of doing so. I discuss topics such as hatching eggs, building chicken coops, feeding them, and more.
The site includes topics such as how to choose breeds, what type of coop you need, where to get feed at great prices, tips for harvesting eggs, and recipes for cooking with chicken from your own flock.
My wife and I are starting a small farm. We’ve been researching the joys of raising chickens, along with all the other aspects of farming. So far, we have 1 rooster and 2 hens in our backyard coop. It’s been an exciting journey so far!
I’m excited for you to explore this site!
We hope that our website will help make your chicken experience more of a joy. We wanted to create all the information in one place, so we made sure it was easy-to-navigate and informative with great pictures too!
However, please note that everything in this blog should be used for educational purposes only and not as veterinary advice. If you think your pet is sick or injured, consult with a veterinarian immediately!
