3 Steps on How to Raise a Chicken as a Pet

So just take a trip down to your local courthouse and find out if you can have a chicken in your backyard.

2.) Secondly, You are going to want to buy or build your chicken a coop or home. Buying a coop is probably the biggest upfront expense you will have to purchase throughout the process of getting a chicken as a pet.

3.) Third, picking out your chicken can be a task in it own. You can either go with a baby chick or go with an adult chicken. You can get baby chicks for like $1 each or cheaper and adult chickens cost about $10 for a normal breed. When searching for an adult breed make sure they have no lumps, they are not balding, and that their eyes are clear and bright.

These are some tips that work well for me when raising my chickens and I hope the work just as well for you. Learning how to raise a chicken as an pet is not an impossible task and I believe that you can do it. So let go over what we learned.
