|Getting Started with Backyard Chickens|
***Choose a space, build a coop and learn how to take care of your chicks properly. Should you wish to hatch your chicks from un-cooled eggs then you will also need an incubator. You may also want to view the recent Today special about backyard chickens.
*** Make sure you keep your other pets, especially dogs, away from your chickens and eggs. Even small friendly dogs will sometimes attack chickens and eat the eggs. It is better to avoid this situation all together and simply keep the dogs and chickens apart.
