In our busy lives, we want simple pets that fit into our homes, not just in our work and social lives. Amidst the chaos, chickens stand out as the epitome of low-maintenance companionship. Fresh eggs are not the only benefit of having these birds. They also have many advantages that make them a perfect and easy addition to any home.
The Time-Saving Wonders:
One of the most remarkable aspects of owning chickens is the time they save you. Chickens don't need walks or grooming like other pets. They can explore outside and find their own food without needing you all the time.
They don't need constant supervision or interaction, which is great for busy people. It also makes owning them stress-free.
Cleaning Made Effortless:
Say goodbye to the tedious task of cleaning up after your pets inside the house. Chickens, being outdoor creatures, live in coops that naturally prevent dirt, damage, and allergens from invading your living space.
With a well-ventilated and well-built coop, you only need to dedicate a minimal amount of time each week to keep their living quarters clean. And our coops offer a comfortable, secure environment free from mites and rot.
Keeping your coop clean is essential for a happy, healthy flock. As experienced chicken keepers, we know only too well the challenges that come with regularly cleaning a wooden coop. This is why every one of our coops has been designed for quick and easy cleaning.
This means you can spend more time with your pets instead of cleaning up after them.
Economic Benefits of Chicken Companionship:
Chickens not only save you time but also contribute to significant long-term financial savings. Unlike other pets that may require insurance, daycare, or expensive specialty food, chickens are frugal companions.
Once you invest in a suitable coop and run, your ongoing expenses are minimal. This financial prudence extends to their diet, as chickens happily thrive on simple, cost-effective feed. Sabina, our Hen Guru, has all the information you need to know about the best feed for your hens.
Adding chickens to your family is a good and cost-effective decision that helps your household.
Feeding Body and Soul:
Beyond the practical advantages, chickens provide a unique and wholesome source of joy. Eggs are a good source of protein.
They also have a significant impact on your emotions and overall well-being. Their funny actions, soft clucking, and love for treats and attention are a great cure for the pressures of today's world. In the midst of their simple needs lies the power to nourish not only your body but also your soul.
Simple Needs, Simple Pleasures:
Meeting the needs of your feathered friends is a straightforward affair. All they require is a well-ventilated coop cleaned once a week, a secure outdoor area for foraging, clean food, water, and grit in suitable receptacles (topped up daily), access to a dust bath, and the company of other birds.
Starting with a minimum of three chickens ensures a thriving social environment, as these sociable creatures thrive in the company of their kind. Our Ground Coop is a perfect entry level coop for anyone new to chicken keeping.
Investing in Long-Term Happiness:
While chickens themselves are inexpensive to acquire, the coop and run constitute a more significant investment. Choosing a reputable brand and making a one-time purchase not only simplifies the process of keeping poultry but also ensures the best welfare for your flock.
