Raising Chicks in the City

BONGIOZZO/SHUTTERSTOCK

Explore your options by turning to page 4, and read about how you can start a chicken-keeping movement where you live. Learn about the different breeds that might do well in a small flock (page 18) and consider some of the old fashioned breeds still available today (page 26). When it comes to housing, there are many varieties. If you’re energy-conscious and want to reduce your carbon footprint, consider building a small solar coop (page 34). And if you really want to go the extra mile and recycle, check out our suggestions for what to do with all that chicken poo (page 88). Yes, even poop can be useful.

No matter where you live, chickens require quality nutrition to remain productive. Depending on your goals, what you feed your flock may change. Learn more on page 40 and on page 52.
