With the economy it is today, we need to do all we can to save money. Rearing chickens is an affordable alternative to shopping for eggs and meat. You will need to invest a little to get started, but you can have fresh eggs every day, and a nice chicken dinner once in a while. When selecting chickens, you must decide if you want them to breed or not. If you rely on chickens for meat, be sure to get one rooster per coop. Roosters are territorial and tend to fight other roosters.
