Keeping Chickens

Would You Keep Chickens?

During reading this week (with Ms Steans) we have been reading about 'Keeping Chooks'.  We've been identifying the pros and cons of keeping chickens.

Your challenge is to get your family talking!  

Challenge:  Discuss, as a family, how you would feel about keeping chickens at home.  Consider things such as:  Is your property big enough?  Where would you build the coop?  How do you think the neighbours would react to you keeping chickens?  What would be the benefits to your family of keeping chickens?  What would be the drawbacks (the negative aspects) of keeping chickens at your house?

If you are a family who already has chickens at home, we'd love to hear how it works for you.  What are the challenges?  What are the benefits?  

Challenge:  Get creative!  Present your findings as a Pic Collage (or any other visual way) and, if I am able, I will up load your presentation to our blog.  Alternatively, leave a comment below to tell us your/your families thoughts and feelings.

We look forward to some great feedback!

  1. I probably wouldn't want to own chooks. I also wouldn't have enough space for them. (And I would prefer to spend money on something else.) Olivia.C🐔

    1. Olivia C, there is no way I have enough space for chooks either. Also, it's annoying enough finding someone to look after the cat when we are away ... I wouldn't want to be having to find a 'chook minder' too. Plus, we really don't eat that many eggs in our household!

    1. I'm sure your cat and dog will enjoy not having to share their space also.

  4. I probably wouldn't get chooks because I live on the hill and they could just run away because we can't put any fences any where. Amelia.M :)

  6. It would be very hard for us to keep chooks at our house because
    we don't have enough land for them.

  8. It would be very hard to keep chicks at our house
    because we don't own a lot of land.
