  1. that is so true about the refrigeration! Have you ever read “Like Water for Chocolate?”

  2. great video! Thank you for posting this and I plan on showing it to my daughters. We are thinking about chickens but we don’t live on a farm.

    Great chicken coop! How many chickens do you have and how many eggs do they produce for you on an average month?

  6. Informative video! My husband and I are getting 9 baby girls in two weeks and are building our coop now. We’ve never had chickens before OR built a coop, so this was helpful to see how the chickens USE their roosts and next boxes, which you don’t see when you look at chicken coop plans! They seem very very happy!

    i just got chickens mine is izzy if i put my hand in there house she’ll walk onto my hand

  8. great little vid.you love your chickens!

  9. If you live in the area of Portland, OR or Seattle WA, why not just order one from us?
    at: the chicken tractor company dot com We deliver! Check us out! We are all about green living and love to promote it by having the tractors available for those who do not have the time to build them.

  10. Nice set up you have. I have a small flock myself (9 birds) and they are great. Messy for sure though! I am forever cleaning them. D: I love them though and it`s nice to have fresh eggs.

  11. @mskittystone Some chickens use nest boxes and roosts… *eyes her birds* Mine refuse to use the nest boxes half the time. I have found eggs on the floor, on straw bales, and all over the barn. It`s like an Easter egg hunt every day. Not sure if you are getting chicks, pullets or hens, but once they are hens expect 9 eggs a day… if they are really happy as many as 18 a day for the first year (mine all laid two eggs a day for the first year)- be ready to bake lots lol.

  13. @dgbregman I live in regular suburbs and have had chickens here for the past 4-5 years-no problems. My neighbors are fine with it. They are rather quiet because I only have hens (no crowing roosters). I take walks in the neighborhood often & every year I hear more and more chickens & even roosters in peoples yards in my area. In this neighborhood you’d never think people would be raising chickens. I doubt they are even allowed here, but food in stores can’t be trusted so we raise our own!

  14. We have some chickens hatched the natural way and they are not afraid of people anybody walks in the barn they will just jump on the sholder…

  15. Can you please do another update video on the coop please? also have you ever had any problems with fox’s or bears?

  16. @Chris07860 This movie is very outdated…we have a different coop now.

    I probably won’t be doing anymore coop videos simply because I don’t really have anything to say… We haven’t ever had problems with bears or foxes…but we do keep them in an enclosed area and shut them inside at night.

  17. @RidingDaisy darn well I really enjoyed the video

  18. @Chris07860 Seems a lot of people did… haha 😉 Glad you enjoyed it.

  19. @RidingDaisy hi pleaase can u help me its just that i really want chicken but my parents wont let me and we have the money nd stuff but can u just tell me or rather my parents why chickens are so cool. thanks carys.xxx

  20. @tymawr101 I’m guessing your parents don’t want you to have them because they think you aren’t responsible enough… in which case, you need to prove to them you are. Even if you have the money, maybe you should save your own to be able to build a coop and get the chickens. If you really really want them, you can earn the money for them, and that really shows responsibility.

    4:56 to 4:57 haha magical jumping chicken!

    Depending on where you live you should check the local ordinances before setting up for chickens. I know in Europe they are a little more receptive to the idea of homeowners keeping chickens, but in the US most places have ordinances prohibiting livestock ownership in non-farm areas. You wouldn’t want to commit to the expense of raising chickens only to have the city inspector send you a summons. Even in places that allow chickens, roosters may still be illegal because of the noise.
