Rearing chickens can be done anywhere; provided that your chicken will have sufficient space for eating, sleeping and grazing. But the most preferred place to raise your fowls would be at home, specifically in your backyard. Here are four good reasons why you should be keeping chickens at home instead of leaving them in wide farms.

• Egg quality assurance: Commercially-produced egg is sold in bulks. Therefore, they have to use several artificial methods of making their hens lay eggs even if it is not so nutritious at all. What they care about is the quantity and not the quality. When you raise chickens at home, on the other hand, you are obliged to keep an eye on them and make sure that they get the best life they could ever have. Besides, it is your responsibility to make them hale and hearty all the time.

• Provides an all natural egg product: Many institutions administer hormones and other chemicals just to improve their hen's egg production. The chickens are injected with steroids to increase their muscles size which will later be consumed by men. This superfluous items need not to be present in your chicken's circulation because if you know the right technique on how to raise chickens at home without using chemicals, you can get a bigger chicken built and even increase your hen's egg production.


• Gives temporary entertainment: Have you seen chickens running in person? If not, then you should start to spend some of your spare time in your backyard and take a glimpse on your chicken's activities. You may be surprised about what they can do and might make you laugh until you drop.

• Increases production of fertilizers: The chicken manure can be a very good fertilizer for your growing plants. It is said to be rich in protein, nitrogen and phosphate. But before you place it on top of your plant, let them sulk for at least three days because immediate placement of fresh manure can cause burning.

Continuing to raise chickens at home is the cleverest thing to do for chicken rearing. Once you have entered this endeavor, perks will surely flow like a river. If you live in areas where there is a constant threat from roaming predators such as foxes, wild cats, you should make your holding pen secure enough to prevent intrusion by these predators and high enough (at least 1.8 m.) to prevent the chickens from flying over and expose themselves to danger.
