How to Manage Chicken Flock?

After you have set your tractor and flattened the mud pasture, the next thing you have to take care is of your chickens. This doesn’t take a lot of time. All you have to do in the morning is, bring your chickens together, feed them, make sure they have fresh and clean water to drink, and do not forget to take out their eggs from the boxes.

The other thing that you need to make sure of is that whether your chickens are laying eggs normally or not. One egg per hen every day is the normal rate of laying eggs while they are young, especially in summer, autumn, and spring, because in winters the egg production drops to half.

Also, as time passes, the chickens stop laying eggs. Therefore, you should be mindful of extending your chicken flock. The hens become broody in spring therefore you can take this chance and extend your work flock.

Place a broody hen with the other 10 eggs and let her sit there all day, this way the eggs after 21 days will start to hatch and more chicks will grow. After becoming laying hens you will be able to get more eggs per day. Rest, you can eat the old hens that are no longer able to lay eggs.
