Chicken Keeping Essentials
Below are all of the products and resources that I recommend for all chicken keepers.
The Beginner’s Guide to Raising Chickens
This ebook covers all the basics of chicken keeping. I go over how to choose the best breeds, raising chicks, everyday care, coop set up, and more! Learn more here.
Nesting Box Liners
These are my absolute favorite nesting box liners. They last for at least a month and even longer if you add some shavings on top every few days.
You can learn more about these nesting box liners in my article here.
An automatic chicken waterer makes chicken keeping so much easier. Simply taking away that one small worry of checking and filling their water every day makes a huge difference.
I’ve tried many other automatic waterers out there and they always seem to have issues. But this one has been great.
I screw it in place to a board in the chicken run and then I screw a board just above it at a 45-degree angle so that the chickens can’t stand on top of the water and poop in it.
I love to have a free-feeding chicken feeder so you don’t have to feed your flock every day. This feeder here has the option to hold 10, 25, or 50 pounds of food depending on the size of your flock.
Diatomaceous earth is a chicken keeper’s best friend!
It is an all-natural product that kills mites and bugs and so it is a great addition to your chicken’s dust bath.
It’s also great for controlling odors and so it’s beneficial to sprinkle throughout the chicken coop and chicken run after you clean it.
If you’d like to learn more about diatomaceous earth and all the ways that I use it with my chickens, check out my article here.
Oyster shell is essential if you have laying hens. It provides them with the additional calcium they need for laying eggs with hard eggshells.
You can learn more in my article, The Benefits of Oyster Shell for Chickens.
Poultry grit is another essential element to your chicken’s diet that helps them properly digest their food. You can learn more in my post, Your Guide to Chicken Grit.
