How To: Getting started raising backyard chickens

Farm to table can’t get any fresher than raising your own chickens for backyard fresh eggs. However it can be a messy and time consuming task- but all good things don’t come easy!

Here is what you need in getting started to raise chickens:

Raising Rooster vs Raising Hens

Depending what you are looking for, raising all hens or a mixture of hens and roosters is important. Having just hens will allow you to just have fresh eggs, without the worry of baby chicks. If you want a coop with chicks, having a rooster with only a few hens can help you grow your little backyard farm.

Raising hens from chicks are the best ways to bond with your birds. Keeping more than 2 birds together will keep them from being lonely.

Finding Space for your Chickens

Chickens do not like to be overcrowded and a coop can take up a lot of space. Based on how many hens you have you will need to accommodate the size of your coop. Giving your hens room to roam around a yard will also keep them healthy and happy- just like us they need to be able to exercise and spread their wings.

Keeping your hens safe should be a top priority as well. Household pets, like dogs or cats, are potential predators for your chickens.

Backyard Chicken Coops

You need a place to house your hens and a Chicken Saloon is your one stop shop. With six different options to choose from, a Chicken Saloon coop can house up to 15 chickens with our Ranch designs. We offer affordable designs with same day shipping! Each coop requires minimal assembly. Our coops come flat packed in 1 or 2 boxes depending on the coop. All of the wall panels, roof panels, doors, are pre-assembled and will just need to be connected. Each piece with chicken wire already has the chicken wire attached to the panel. Instructions are included with every coop.

Feeding Your Backyard Chickens

Commercial feed can be bought to feed your chickens, but there are many other foods that your chickens will love. Chickens can have personal preferences when it comes to certain table foods and compost pile goodies. Feeding them vegetables and fruit scraps are fine for them to eat, but you want to make sure they also get enough protein and not fill them up on carbs. Feeding your chickens healthy options versus just regular feed can affect their eggs.

 

Raising backyard chickens can be a great way to create responsibilities for your children or even save a little money on the eggs you eat everyday. Order today!

Rosemary - Chicken Coop HerbsChicken Coop Herbs

Your chicken coop never smelled so good!

That’s what you’ll say once you realize one of the benefits of having rosemary in your chicken coop.

So what are the benefits? What makes this one of the best chicken coop herbs?

Well, like many herbs, rosemary has its unique features that can help your chickens. Some of these features include the improvement of respiratory health and act as an insect repellent. You can take advantage of these features by simply adding it to your the chicken coop.

And:

The best part is that rosemary, which is a perennial herb, is easy to grow. Since rosemary is a herb that is considered to be a green treat, it can be fed free-choice to your chickens.

With all that being said, let’s explore the various benefits rosemary can have on your chicken coop. You will be wondering why you never tried this before:

Using Rosemary in Your Chicken Coop

First off, what is a rosemary herb?

Rosemary is an aromatic herb that grows on an evergreen bush. This leaf herb is a part of the mint family. Typically, it’s is used in cooking and as well as an air-freshener.

Why should you use it in your chicken coop?

The answer is simple. Not only does rosemary smell great, it also serves as a deodorizer, pain reliever and respiratory support for your chicken. It doesn’t stop there, it can also be used as an insect repellent. To get the most out of this herb, you should plant it in and around the chicken coop.

Deodorizer

We all know how foul your chicken coop can get.

Luckily, rosemary is a natural and inexpensive herb that can deodorize your chicken coop in no time. You can just simply hang a few twigs, place some twigs behind the nest boxes or sprinkle some clipping in the chicken coop. It’s that easy.

The best part is that you won’t need any water. As the rosemary dries out the stronger the smell will get stronger. Voilà, you have yourself a fresh smelling and deodorized chicken coop.

Pain Reliever

Surprisingly, rosemary is great to help relieve any pain your chickens may have. You can take some rosemary to make a salve. It can also be eaten fresh by your chickens and applied fresh directly to your chicken’s wound. These are some ways you can use rosemary effectively to relief any pain issues.

Respiratory Support

There are a variety of respiratory issues that can occur in your chicken coop. These respiratory issues come from viruses and bacteria. However, there is a way to prevent this from happening.

Rosemary’s aromatic smell can actually give respiratory support for your chicken coop. By placing clipping or growing rosemary in your chicken’s nest boxes, you can help improve their respiratory system, especially for newly born chicks.

Insect Repellant

Even though you may not notice any odd signs from your chickens, insects can actually be inside the chicken coop and affect your chicken’s health.

Rosemary can help. It can help deter insects, like flies, ants, and mosquitoes; from getting into the chicken coop. Just place a small cloth scented bag filled with rosemary inside the chicken coop, and plant it around the chicken coop.

Go ahead and get rid of that toxic spray because all natural is the best way to go.

If you need more information or have any questions about rosemary chicken coop herbs, please give us a call at 801.214.1278 or send us an email at support@chickensaloon.com. Our Chicken Saloon team will be more than happy to answer any of your questions.

Caring for Your Coop

Caring for Your Coop If you own a chicken coop, then you have come to accept the fact that your chickens are also a part of the family. This is why caring for your coop is so important to the well-being of your chickens. The coop is where your chickens eat, sleep and lay their eggs. So why not keep your coop and provide extra protection? Think about it: There are tons of predators out there that want a piece of chicken from youcoop like foxes, raccoons, weasels, and even your own dog. But it doesn’t stop there. You also have to worry about mother nature. Imagine waking up in the middle of a storm to find your chicken coop toppled over and your flock running all over the place getting wet. Now that would be horrible. Luckily: If you take the necessary steps beforehand, you can save yourself some time and money while still maintaining the level of security and protection that your chickens need. Let’s take a look at some of the steps you can take to keep your coop up to par while preventing predators from getting to your chickens.

Properly Caring For Your Coop

Planning ahead is the best way to keep up your coop. You need to make sure to keep your coop dry, secured to the ground and have added protection. Caring for your coop is not as complex as it seems. You just need to make time to care for your coop and apply these preventive measures:

Keep Your Coop Dry

Although your coop may come with a weatherproof coating, wear and tear from outside elements can eventually deteriorate your coops exterior. This can cause your coop to become vulnerable to rain. Nothing is more annoying than having a wet coop. If you don’t take care of this problem as soon as possible, you can run into situations like wet nesting boxes, wet chickens, mud bog coop, and moldy feed. And for those cold climate areas, your chickens may develop frostbite due to the excess moisture. Fortunately, there is hope: As a preventive measure, it’s recommended to apply a water sealant such as Thompson’s water seal clear multi-surface waterproofer, which you can find at Lowe’s for $54.50. This will help prevent any leaks from occurring.

Secure Your Coop Down

Many coop owners won’t think about this, but states that have high winds, such as Kansas and Nebraska, can become problematic for lightweight coops. Coops can actually be toppled over or even blown away. In hurricane states, heavier coops can have the same problem. If this happens, your chickens will have exposure to the outside elements and local predators. Yikes! Keep in mind: The best way to prevent your coop from being blown away is to secure it to the ground. For example, you can set four metal fence around the coop and anchored with thick gauged wires like the Hillman Group 9-gauge galvanized utility wire, which is found at Lowe’s for $9.98. There are many ways to strap your coop down. You just need to find the best solution for your type of coop. And by doing so, you can rest assure that your coop will stay in place during high winds.

Add Extra Predator Protection

Well, getting a coop is the first line of defense. What about the 2nd, 3rd and 4th line of defense? With the types of predators preying on your chickens, just having a coop will not cut it. Don’t get me wrong, having a coop is a safe place for your chickens to lay their eggs and roost at night. But: You still need some extra added protection, especially when your chickens are in the coop run: Raise the coop - One of the first things you should do once you have a coop is to raise it from the ground. This will deter snakes, rats, and skunks from living underneath the coop. Also deter them from stealing chick, young hens, and eggs. With that, be mindful of keeping your coop tight. You don’t want a snake or rat to squeeze in through a small crack or hole. Cover the coop run – You should at least have a part, if not all, of the coop run covered. This will offer protection from outside elements and aerial predators. You can do this by using welded-wire fencing – game-bird netting or chicken wire. Motion Sensor Lighting – This type of protection can help deter night predators, such as a raccoon, from attacking the coop. Simply add a solar-powered motion sensor light to your coop like an All-Pro 180-degree 2-head white solar-powered LED motion-activated flood light with timer, which goes for $79 at Lowe’s. Voilà, you have yourself some night protection.

chicken coop with a rooftop garden

You can agree that having a chicken coop is great and having a garden is even better!

What if you could combine both? Hmm… imagine the possibilities a chicken coop with a rooftop garden will bring to the table.

Not only will your chickens have protection from predators, but so will your garden.

Let’s explore how you can protect your chickens while producing an organic roof garden with the use of a chicken coop.

 

Protecting your eggs while producing veggies

If you’re already have, or are looking to buy a chicken coop, it’s obvious to say that chickens will depend on you for safety and security. The main purpose of getting a chicken coop is to protect your chickens from nightly predators like voles, woodchucks, squirrels, gophers, rabbits, moles and other unwanted furry animals. Chickens coops also provide protection from bad weather such as rain, cold, and heat.

Once you take a look inside, chicken coops are a great place to have nest boxes and perches. Chicken use nest boxes to lay their eggs while they use perches for sleeping purposes. With the proper protection, your chickens will supply nutritious eggs and an abundant amount of manure.

Quickly:

Here are some basic tips you should use to insure the protection of your chickens:

  1. Make sure your coop is sturdy and well maintained
  2. Make sure that your chickens are roosting inside the coop at night
  3. Make sure to enclose the chicken coop
  4. Make sure to cover the run with an aviary net
  5. Make sure to clear the area surrounding the coop
  6. Make sure to place objects that make noise and reflect light to deter any potential threat
  7. Make sure to set up traps to defend against pesky varmints
  8. Make sure that you never leave any eggs inside of the coop

 

Now:

What if you could get your veggies from the same place you got your eggs?

By adding a roof garden to your chicken coop, you will have an ideal place for a garden, especially if your backyard garden soil is has poor drainage, compacted or is of poor quality.  Similar to an elevated garden bed, chicken coop roof gardens eliminates the need to kneel and bend. Having a roof garden on your chicken coop will make planting, tending and harvesting more convenient and enjoyable. As an added bonus, you will notice a decrease in pest and weeds.

Chicken manure is a home gardener’s best friend:

Since you have a chicken coop, it make sense to use your chicken manure on the roof garden. Why pay for something you already have? This is an excellent resource that will help fertilize your garden.

Chicken manure is great source of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. It can easily be compost and converted into fertilizer or “black gold” for your garden soil. Try using leaves, pine needles, straw and grass clippings to add more organic nutrients.

 

Here are some tips to get your chicken manure fertilizer ready:

  1. Collect the chicken manure from the chicken coop (green)
  2. Collect the bedding from your chicken coop (brown)
  3. Collect yard debris like plants, leaves, small sticks, and shredded paper (brown)
  4. Place two parts brown and one part green in a one cubic yard compost bin
  5. Water thoroughly and turn pile every three weeks

 

This process may take up to 12 months. Patience is a virtue. Your garden will reward you with bigger and healthier organic veggies as a result from using chicken manure fertilizer.

Did you know that chicken manure has more nutrients than a cow, horse, sheep and steer manure?

Once you have properly compost your chicken manure, the organic fertilizer that you’ve created is ready for use. The fertilizer will increase the water holding capacity and provide nutrients for the veggies in your garden. You will be able to grow your favorite produce, flower, herbs or anything that you can think of in an organic manner in no time.

Here are some suggested shallow depth vegetables, fruits and herb that you can grown:

Carrots Radishes Beets
Parsnips Spinach Lettuce
Bok Choy Fennel Collard Greens
Kohlrabi Arugula Kale
Leeks Broccoli Cabbage
Cauliflower Napa Cabbage Brussel Sprouts
Jersusalem Artichoke Onions Potatoes
Tomatoes Strawberries Corn
Blueberries Basil Chives
Cilantro Mint Oregano
Parsley Tarragon Thyme

 

Overall, having a chicken coop with a rooftop garden a great do-it-yourself or DIY project.

Before you get to working on this great project, consider the type of garden you will love top have. This way you can build according to the vegetables, fruits or herbs that you love. And as you can see, there’s a great selection to choose from. Hopefully, this gardening selection has gotten you to consider or reconsider adding a rooftop garden to your chicken coop.

Raising Backyard Chickens in the Winter- Staying Healthy and Warm | Chicken Saloon

Chickens in Winter- preparing backyard chickens for winter’s colder months.

Even if you live in a climate that only gets cold in the evening hours, caring for and raising backyard chickens in the winter months will require some additional work. Don’t be surprised if your chickens stop laying or slow down during the winter months or, at least, during the height of the cold weather. Turn to the tips below to provide your chickens with the care they require.

Inspect The Coop

First, you must inspect your coop to make sure there are no areas in need of repair. Since your chickens are likely to be spending more time indoors, or all of their time indoors depending on your climate and winter conditions, maintaining your chicken coop will be extremely important during these cold months. Ensure ventilation is sufficient and designed to minimize drafts.

Proper Hydration

If you live in an area that often drops below freezing, then you will be required to inspect your chickens’ water source at least twice each day to ensure it is not frozen over.

Winter Feed

Many urban farmers adjust their feed during the winter months. Since chickens will have less access to protein-packed treats, like worms and bugs, you might want to consider providing them with treats, like freeze-dried mealworms or sunflower seeds. This is, of course, in addition to their daily feed.

Heat or No Heat?

Heating chicken coops is a hot topic of debate for backyard chicken farmers. It is important to keep in mind that chickens will grow winter down to help keep them warm. Heating your chicken coop is not only expensive, but also, a potential fire hazard. If your chickens get used to the heat, a power outage will leave your chickens unprepared for the true temperature. In fact, the shock of going from a heated coop to little heat can prove fatal.

Depending on where you live, you may choose to seal your coop and keep your chickens inside all day to keep them warm. You must also insulate your chicken coop with bedding and litter to keep it as warm as possible. If you live in an area that experiences extreme cold, like the Midwest, you may choose to use heat bulbs on days when the temperatures are dangerously low.

If you have baby chicks, you may need to provide a few heating bulbs, until they are a bit older. A sign that winter coop temperatures are too cold for chicks is if they are peeping loudly and non-stop.

Just like during the hot and humid summer season, caring for your backyard chickens during the winter months will require season-specific consideration.

SPRINGVILLE, UT, Nov. 30 — There is a rise in the interest in backyard chickens. A 2007 USDA study cited one of the reasons for this growing interest was that people enjoy the hobby or fun of raising chickens in their yards. As more and more communities adopt ordinances to regulate how chickens may be kept in an urban area, this trend does not appear to be waning in interest.

The Benefits of Raising Backyard Chickens

The local sustainability movement that has been gaining in popularity, with a rise in local farmer’s markets, provides efforts to promote buying from local businesses and chicken farming. This movement is fueled, in part, by a desire to reduce one’s carbon footprint and produce a sustainable source of protein.

Depending on the standards within the community that a person lives, it is possible to own several chicken coops designed to hold dozens of chicken in order to meet the food production needs of a family. Owners of backyard chickens delight in the production yield that comes with a laying hen, which can provide an egg a day. Owning several backyard chickens can help reduce reliance on store bought eggs and aid in a greener, more self-sustainable lifestyle.

Care and Maintenance Associated with Backyard Chickens

A reason for the increased interest in raising backyard chickens is the ease in care and maintenance of chicken coops. Chickens eat all-grain feed that can be readily obtained at many retail pet stores or ordered online. Chicken coops for sale are typically low maintenance and durable enclosures designed for different types of climates and weather conditions. Those who purchase a chicken coop for sale as an enclosure for their egg laying hens can provide their birds with a comfortable setting for which to be productive and provide a consistent yield.

Investing in Chicken Coops for Sale

Many owners of backyard chickens invest in a chicken coop for sale provided by local businesses that specialize in the construction and manufacturing of these spaces. The idea of purchasing chicken coops for sale is to create an outdoor space that protects the chickens from danger and in many communities, meet local ordinance requirements. A company like Chicken Saloon, based in Springville, UT, specializes in the design and build of chicken coops for sale to the urban farmer looking to participate in this growing fad.

We offer a number of different models that will fit the needs of every different type of chicken keeper as well. Whether you are looking for a small starter chicken coop, good for your small flock of one or two birds, to a large chicken house with run, fitting upwards of 15 chickens, we have got you covered! Keeping chickens might have once been an esoteric activity, done only by the farmers of this great country, but since then times have changed, and for the best! As more and more local municipalities allow for keeping chickens, even in urban backyards, we have seen a surge in the amount of people wanting to raise their own chickens. People’s reasons vary from wanting to have their own home-grown eggs on hand, to beginning a new and fun family venture with kids, to even ‘prepping’ for future downturns.

Keeping birds is nothing new to us at chickensaloon.com. We have a long history in raising birds, dating back to a number years ago when we raised chickens on a large scale; at one of the largest bird farms in the country with over 150,000 chickens. More recently we have focused on raising our own smaller, personal flocks for fun and for the delicious eggs it provides. Having this vast experience gives us the knowledge that we need to be able to assist with any chicken raising questions, and we hope you won’t hesitate to ask! Whether you have questions on what size flock you should have, to what to feed your chickens and how to take care of them in other ways, we can help. Please don’t ever hesitate to drop us a line.

All of our coops are made with sturdy lumber and wire. Our wood is made from Douglas Fir and we use galvanized machining mesh to help ensure that our chicken runs are completely predator-proof. The galvanized mesh has quarter inch holes to provide the best stability and strength against possible predators, no matter if you deal with coyotes and bobcats to even foxes and raccoons. Our Fir wood is made with tongue and groove construction to make sure that our kits go together nice and easy for you. The average person will report back that it takes them only one or two hours to put together a chicken coop, depending on the size of the model. Our coops are also sealed and heat treated with eco-friendly sealers so that your birds and eggs are never put into a toxic environment that could harm you or them.
