Hi, I’m from Missouri and I’m newbie here. I’ve loved domesticated chickens since the year 2000 but I could never get to have pet chickens until this year. I’m an animal lover and birds are among my top favorite animals ever. I have three chicken chicks. One is a Light Brahma, the other is a Cuckoo Maran and the last one is a white silkie chick. How do I raise chickens and take care of them so that they can live strong and healthy lives? We are raising chickens for their eggs only. These are pets and not food.
