Keeping chickens in Lexington is legal, but local ordinances and neighborhood limitations might set limits. Seek advice from your neighborhood association to discover more on possible rules.
People raise chickens for various reasons. "Some people wish to raise their very own food because they would like to know where their food originates from,Inch Porter stated. "A lot of people want their children to understand how to raise chickens and find out what must be done.Inch
Chickens are known as a "gateway animal" since they’re simple to keep in a tiny urban space, he stated, and success together can encourage their keepers to boost other animals. Many people range from country or really are a generation approximately taken off farming. "They remember their grandma and grandpa getting chickens. They would like to return in it because chickens were a part of their heritage," he stated.
Raising chickens for economical reasons isn’t the reason to get it done, Porter stated.
"You will get eggs in the supermarket a great deal cheaper," he stated. "However the eggs out of your backyard, from chickens which have foraged on your lawn or garden, are merely scrumptious."

Chicken Coop Tour – Design Ideas For Easy Care Pt 2
Theodore Lopez: Wow! [Check Details Here⇒⇒⇒https://plus.google.com/u/0/115886167078032783384/posts/9n7qbgTYK71 ] Great plan! This is so inspiring. I have zero building experience, but my neighbor does, and he flicked through it with me and said it was coherent, and simple to follow. The designs in this are awesome, and easy to adapt too. I look forward to having a couple of chooks again.
scott grizzle: those are not cedar shavings ,they are pine and they are not toxic,cedar would be red.you can read on the bag it says Ozark pine shavings
Charles Patterson: Looks like a nice coop.\nI would suggest that the extra light you give during the shorter days be in the morning instead of at night. The reason why is that if the light suddenly goes off at night they can't find their way up to their purchases (safely find their way). They do not have that great of night vision. So letting the natural light go out gives them time to get settled, but the light in the morning still gets that job done in the end.
Una Authement: Charles Patterson ,
David Benson: I really liked how you made this because of what you learned from others. I appreciate your effort. I have watched both your videos twice. Once when I was thinking about making a coop and once just as I was in the final stages of putting it together and things were still fluid and I could change things. Enjoyed your videos and they were very educational.
TLGardens: Great vid. Thanks for all the explanations. You explain very well !!
Carolyn Franjko: Great tour. You had so many great and simple ideas. I need to do some work on my chicken/duck coops and now I'm excited with so many cool things to incorporate.
westmeathguy: Nice job. It's important to have vents at floor level as well for optimum circulation of fresh air.
jimmy Page: Nice coop. In the winter I thought the same thing but actually you want vents up high because of the moisture from there breathing can cause frostbite if not vented.
Craig Hewitt: Excellent job..!!…thoroughly enjoyed these 2 videos…many thanks..:)
