Welcome to our Raising Chickens course! Raising chickens has become a popular past time in urban and suburban areas. This course is comprehensive for beginners and advanced. Our homesteaders have developed a fairly comprehensive course (to which they’ll be adding periodically) designed for people new to raising chickens, those raising them in the city, or those who’ve been raising them for awhile. We cover predators, egg laying, hatching, and everything else you can think of. If you have a question, or if something isn’t adequately covered, just leave a comment and we’ll get back to you. Chances are it’s covered somewhere in the course!
