    My name is Ayesha I am American but I currently live in Pakistan. I have had backyard chickens since childhood but never raised them in another country. Things are a little different here but basic concepts are the same. Chickens kind of raise themselves. Right now I only have 3 chickens but planning to get more. Finding pure breeds is difficult here and you can' just go buy certain types of feed for them so I have to be creative.

    Yes very much trouble.... everyone here just feeds their chickens bread. I know that's not a complete diet for them so it drives me crazy. Right now I'm feeding kitchen veggie scraps, greens, a little grain (not sure what this grain consists of but I can tell it has some corn), and some bread, and earthworms if I find them lol.
