Raise Happy, Healthy, and Productive Chickens!
Remember in the guide to raising chickens, happy and healthy brood means more eggs. While you can’t force your chickens to lay, you can definitely encourage them. Healthy chickens need plenty of water, protein-rich feed (any commercially approved brand should do), calm spaces for roosting, dark and quiet nesting boxes, adequate hygiene, suitable climate control, and plenty of ventilation. With the right care, most breeds of hens remain at peak productivity – laying an egg almost every day – for up two or three years. A few can even continue laying for close to a decade.
