What kind or rake? How exactly do you rake up chicken poop? This will be my least favorite chore.

Some breeds of chickens are much noisier than others regardless if they are hens or roosters. We have one Rhode Island Red hen that makes more noise than the other 13 hens when she lays. My newest theory is that any need of chicken that is named after an East Coast state are wild ! A theory that has been confirmed after we just got 2 Delaware chicks last month. LOL

Commitment is the top, number one consideration! It needs daily attention not just by anybody but by someone who cares and know the whys & what fors. I've missed a few opportunities as a youngster (8-to around 16 year old). Have to be home DAILY before sundown to feed the dozen or so chickens [plus the (around) half dozen Peking ducks]. Wasn't able to go on Boy Scout overnight camping trips because weekend mornings is my turn to feed the chicken (and the ducks). And, after that to clean the coop, feed trays, & water bottles. Notwithstanding is my mother's dealings with the vet because of sick chickens & chicken pests like mites & chicken worms. Not to scare anybody but, it's sure is a lot of commitment!

I was thinking about getting some chickens but probably will not after reading this article.
Also hear you need a a good cage to keep animal from killing them or stealing the eggs

Thanks for your comments and insight. I'm in the research "should I do or not do" this.
