Keeping your Chicken Healthy while Raising Them There has also been thoughts on what needs to be done with your flock daily. Raising chickens can be quite easy but also needs maintenance to keep their environment safe and clean for both your chickens and your own happiness. Some owners hesitate to do such a grueling task. But in reality without doubt it is one of the easiest works you can do to give your chickens the welcome they deserve. In this part, you’ll learn about what needs to be done and what not to do daily. a. Keep their feed and water containers full at all times. Do not allow them  to be empty of these two essentials. They need both of these things everyday to live. If you tend to go away from your home for a couple of days, make sure to leave sufficient food and water to make sure your chickens don’t get board to the point of picking on each other. b. Clean their water canister. If their water becomes cloudy or if they sensed that it also already dirty, they'll refuse to drink it and as time passes by, they will become dehydrated and eventually become ill and die. c. Every morning, observe for his or her health status. Look at their physical attitude. Do they look bright, active, and healthy? In the event that they don’t look anything close to normal, then you must call the vet to ask for suggestions and answers as to what may be wrong. d.  If you're the type who loves collecting eggs for breakfast or collect them for selling, that little present they laid, you may need to take care of them before they go on so put the eggs inside the fridge to take care of thme and keep them fresh. e. From time to time, you will have the need to go to their coop and look at your chickens. Before you decide to leave for work each day, make sure that things are safe throughout the pen. If you see rat holes, block it. If everything seems fine, be sure to close the door. As dusk comes, that’ll be in most cases when all the chickens are of their nest. Not a single chicken in sight. Protect the area so that predators will not have the opportunity of getting in. Unlike other pets, you can leave the chickens in for days. You need to remember that they have to be provided with enough water and a adequate food supply. If you came back early and locate eggs, it’s still okay to collect. It still maintains its freshness. Here’s the truth that you should know about an egg’s freshness: it usually takes you a minimum of 12 days from the day that it also was laid before it matures into an embryo and develops inside. That is if you have a cockerel running with your hens One more thing that you ought not to worry about, are eggs may be that upon collecting them, there will be chances that you’ll see slight smudges of dirt or feces on the egg’s surface. Do not attempt too scrub the dirt off regardless of how the need is killing you. Because the thing you need to know about eggs is that they are not laid into the world without protective barriers. Bloom is the term that is given to the membrane that is found at the surface of the egg itself. Using the bloom is to protect the egg from bacteria and micro- organisms which will gain access through the shell, should you scrub this, you will take away the protective covering. However if you are that sort of person who wanted things to always be spiffy clean, like the obsessive-compulsive type, you can clean the dirty egg provided it'll  be under warm water and with a very gentle touch.
