Should you raise meat chickens on your homestead?

Raising Meat ChickensChickens are commonly called the “Gateway Animal”, and so it makes sense that Chickens are a great way to get started with raising your own meat. But raising meat birds is not the same as raising egg laying chickens. When the goal of raising your chickens is to put meat in the freezer, you need to consider the breeds, feed, and equipment that you will need to get your birds from the pasture to the plate.

Hunting, more than a sport!

Why I Started Hunting
James Walton “I Am Liberty

HuntingStanding on the edge of summer it’s easy to look off the cliff and see into the dark dismal valley of winter. I hate winter. Still, the holidays that come along with it make it bearable. Then of course there is hunting. I am no seasoned hunter though I am so prepared for this season it’s crazy. Hunting, to me, is about a culmination of skills and having a reason to practice those skills in real this me with a real opponent.

Chickens, raising your own!

Chickens, raising your own!
Host: MHPGardener “Best of Prepper Broadcasting

ChickensWith the cost of eggs and chicken in the stores, and the uncertainty of exactly where they came from or what they have been fed, I’d like to start raising my own chickens. But unlike gardening, I know very little about chickens. I know barbecue wings with ranch dressing make a great snack. And I know that I don’t like my yolks runny. Beyond that, I’m clueless. I have so many questions. What breed is best for egg layers? What breed is best for meat? What is the best method for raising them…free range or a coop? How well do the chicken tractors work? Are there any foods that a chicken shouldn’t eat? How do you take care of them in the winter? I could do some research online and maybe get some answers.
