Raising Chickens

I am looking for ideas on how to raise chickens in your backyard. We have raised lambs, and they are very tasty. Now we are trying our hand at raising chickens for 3 reasons:

  1. to eat all the hoards of grasshoppers
  2. fresh eggs
  3. fresh meat

We started this endeavor with 21 chicks from the feedstore. We are in the process of building the coop. I am looking for ideas to get the most for our money.

Although I live in the suburbs I enjoy Mother Earth News. Their website often has articles on raising chickens.
