Congratulations! You have decided to learn to raise chickens, garden, homestead, live more sustainably…but where do you start?
In effort to help you with easy chicken raising and easy gardening, we have done the research for you!
This is a living list of books we recommend about how to raise chickens, how to start a garden, food systems, composting, permaculture and other topics important to us and relevant to Coops and Gardens.
Beak injuries are common among chickens and are generally the result of fighting with a predator or another chicken, trying to flee from a scary situation, or just a clumsy chicken doing everyday tasks.
Every so often, you may find one of your chickens has hurt their beak; you may see blood, the beak broken off completely or chipped, or discoloration indicating a bruise (like Margo’s beak in the picture above).
If you live in a colder climate, you may be thrilled to see spring roll around. No more trekking through snow to change water and feed your flock! BUT…warmer weather does not mean less responsibility with your flock.
Check out these five easy steps to get your spring chicken keeping off to a good start!
