“It Shouldn’t Be This Much Fun To Keep Happy Healthy Chickens In Your Own Backyard… But It Is!”

Just ask the 23,285 readers of the Chicken Keeping Secrets newsletter!


If you’re interested in keeping chickens at home, or you already are, then Chicken Keeping Secrets is here to provide you with litterally everything you need to know. Over the past 3 years, we’ve helped 10’s of thousands of home chicken keepers from around the world with all of their chicken keeping needs, and now we’re here ready and willing to help you too…

Yes, keeping backyard chickens has once again become extremely popular.

With rising food prices, uncertainty about chemicals & additives in our food, and the way 95% of chickens are inhumanly treated with intensive “cram ’em in cages” farming… it’s no wonder. Intensive chicken farming is just plain wrong, but I know you already feel the same way…

And here’s a little bit of info that might gross you out…

Did You Know…

…that the average egg purchased from your local supermarket or convenience store, whether it be from a barn raised or free range chicken, is generally more than 45 days old before it ends up on your table? Try eating an egg that’s less than 24 hours old – you’ll soon taste the difference…

When you keep chickens at home, you never have to worry about old stale eggs that have lost most of their nutritional value, and more importantly, you’ll never be supporting the intensive chicken farming industry again. You just can’t beat that.

However, while most people have good intentions, they also have a tendency to rush into chicken keeping. They think that keeping chickens in their own backyards or on a small rural plot is like, well, chicken feed.

Unfortunately keeping chickens in your own backyard is not as easy as keeping the shrink wrapped variety that might often be accustomed to visiting your freezer ;-0

However… the good news is that IT CAN BE that easy when you’re armed with the right knowledge…

…if there was such a thing as a doctorate in keeping chickens, that even a country yokle from the backwaters of timbucktoo could follow with ease – Chicken Keeping Secrets would be it…

Private access to the “Chicken Keeping Secrets” membership website is like having your own personal library of proven chicken keeping information & advice, right at your finger tips, that you can access from the comfort of your own home 24 hours a day, 7 days week.

Whether you need instant help with chicken housing information, health related issues, chicken feeding & nutrition problems – in fact any chicken keeping issue at all – we’ve got you covered.

Chicken Keeping Secrets can help you from A-Z… whether you’re a complete beginner and don’t know where to start, or you’re a seasoned chicken keeping professional and just want practical “how to” advice on tap.

Introducing “Chicken Keeping Secrets” brand new, official guide to keeping chickens at home which you can access and download in just a couple of minutes…

“Keeping Happy, Healthy, Egg Laying Chickens In Your Own Backyard…”

“The Chicken Keeping Secrets guide was not only thorough and to the point, but also extremely informative. I particularly liked the chapter on chicken health. The way you’ve covered all of those aliments in detail is certainly going to be of help in the long term. And those bonuses, awesome. I would happily recommend membership to anyone thinking about keeping chickens – it’s fantastic and I’m happy I signed up for sure.” ~  Louisa Gagliardi, Queensland, Australia

In this concise, easy to read, step by step guide – that you can download instantly in a couple of minutes from now – you’ll discover…

  • The 10 most commonly kept breeds of chicken including; their suitability for egg laying and /or meat production, their basic requirements and adaptability to your specific climate, and perhaps most importantly if you have children – their different temperaments and personalities.
  • A brief history of chicken keeping and how to determine whether keeping chickens in your own backyard is really the right option for you.
  • A complete run down on what chickens need to really thrive, the costs involved (they’re much lower than you might think), and how much time you’re really going to need to dedicate to the new additions to your family…

Chicken Coops And Housing
No Mess, No Fuss…

“We’ve had chickens since I was about 5 years old (we’ve got a soft spot for silkies) so I wasn’t sure if I really needed to purchase a membership to Chicken Keeping Secrets in addition to getting your free newsletter. However, sometimes it’s nice to be able to grab a quick second opinion when unusual issues arise. I think this is great value for money, and it’s good to know I can come in here at anytime and search around for your professional opinion on things. You’ve done a great job here” ~  Neil Patchen, New York, USA

  • A detailed discussion on chicken coops including size and space required, accessibility issues, ventilation and insulation, and the placement of your coop. You’ll find out how much space you really need and the answer might just surprise you.
  • Should you buy a ready made chicken coop? Should you build your own from scratch or knock up a kit set coop? Does a chicken really care if it lives in an old dog kennel? We look at all these answers and more to help you make an informed decision that will keep your chickens, your wallet… and your “significant other” happy.
  • Choosing the right bedding material to use on the floor of your chicken coop is extremely important. Get it wrong and the health of you chickens may suffer. Get it right and you’ll reduce smelly odors, maximize hygiene, and minimize cleaning time and requirements. We discuss various bedding material options here and look specifically at those that you can then use as high yielding organic compost for your garden.
  • Are you going to let your chickens out every day to forage around your yard so they can scratch for bugs, grubs, and insects becoming a natural form of pest control? Or should you keep them secure in their own chicken run? If you do let them out how are you going to control them? You’ll find out everything you need to know here.
  • Your new hens are going to need a place to nest inside their home so they can reward you with fresh eggs daily. We look at different types of nesting boxes, their size requirements, positioning, and the ideal number to have to maximize egg production without taking up unnecessary space in the coop, or increasing your hobbies expenditure.
  • Did you know that chickens don’t actually sleep inside their nest boxes? At night they actually roost on perches so you’ll need to ensure their new home has a suitable roosting place. We discuss different perching options, including thickness requirements, positioning to reduce fighting for the “prime roost”, the correct height that they should be placed, general spacing requirements, and common materials.
  • Having the right tools and equipment for your new flock is a must to ensure harmony amongst “the pecking order”. You’ll learn about suitable food and water dispensers, how many you should have depending on how many birds you keep, where they should be placed, and whether you should go for the cheaper plastic varieties or the robust but more expensive options.
  • Natural and artificial lighting inside your chicken’s home is one of the most important factors that needs to be considered for the health of your birds. Not enough light and egg production will be reduced. Too much light and you’ll wear your hen’s health down. Here we look at the various lighting options that are available and the ideal lighting balance required to keep things in check…

Chicken Feeding & Nutrition – What You Put Inside Your Chickens Ultimately Ends Up Inside YOU

  • We take a detailed look at the chicken’s digestive system, how it functions, and what’s natural so you can keep a close eye on things to ensure everything’s normal.
  • How much should you feed your chickens? When should you feed them? Should you use a commercially brought feed or a home made feed? Here you’ll receive a detailed education on the proper nutritional requirements for maintaining a healthy chicken based on differing needs during its lifetime.
  • If you want to make your own chicken feed we provide you with 3 easy homemade chicken feed recipes. Now you’ll know exactly what you’re putting into your chickens and ultimately what’s going to end up inside you when you consume their eggs.
  • If you’re going to supplement your chickens feed with your own household scraps you’ll learn what you can and can’t feed your chickens. Some household scraps can become real treats for your flock; others can be detrimental and even fatal to their health and should never be given to them.
  • We take a detailed look at chicken pellets, chicken mash, cereal feeds, greens, calcium and other vitamin and mineral supplements, chicken grit, “scratch” and much more.

Chicken Health – A Healthy Chicken is a Happy Chicken…

  • Knowing how your chickens should and should not behave in their regular daily routines is fundamental to ensuring everything is fine. You’ll learn about your chickens common behavioral habits such as broodiness, preening, roosting, and more.
  • You’ll learn about the “pecking order” and what to do when you see one of your hens being picked on by other birds in your flock. The “pecking order” is completely natural in chickens but often it can get out of control. You’ll learn exactly what to do if one of your hens becomes too aggressive and the bird on the receiving end becomes injured or hurt.
  • You’ll also learn about less common behavioral habits such as feather pecking, egg eating, cannibalism and more. Nip these last ones in the bud before they get out of control so one of your girls doesn’t end up getting seriously hurt, or even worse, potentially killed.
  • We take a look at 3 of the most common minor aliments that can impact on the health of your chickens, and then a whooping 25 serious aliments that might impact them at some point in the future. Each includes a full description of the aliment and appropriate suggestions on treatment and the course of action you’ll need to take to keep your chickens in tip top condition.
  • We take a look at 8 of the more common types of parasite that can take a fancy to our feathered friends, how to minimize their occurrence in the first place and what to do if they’ve already arrived and are irritating your chickens.
  • Thorough cleaning and hygiene will dramatically reduce any associated health problems and is therefore critically important to the overall health of your flock. We look at how to properly clean out your chicken coop, and what types of cleaning martial you should use to ensure the safety of your birds – whilst at the same time maintaining the cleanest and most hygienic housing possible.
