People also ask, do chickens need daily care?
Although low-maintenance, chickens do require a small amount of daily care as well as some monthly and semi-annual maintenance. Plan on spending 10 minutes a day on your pet chickens, an hour or so per month, plus a few hours twice a year on semi-annual chores.
how do you take care of a chicken for beginners? There seems to be no rhyme or reason when backyard chickens will decide to lay eggs. They may lay every day for a month, then take a break for a few days, then lay every other day. Make sure they have a good, whole grain food with at least 17% protein, water them often, and keep the light on until you go to bed.
One may also ask, are chickens hard to care for?
Caring for chickens isn't hard, but it is a commitment. Ask yourself these questions to see whether you're ready. I know you'll find, like me, that having a flock - no matter how small - is a great experience. They're fun, they're great stress relievers and they produce the most fantastic, healthy eggs.
