Interesting and useful videos about everything chicken and the garden
Chickens come with certain responsibilities and obligations in order to keep them in top shape and happily producing those delicious eggs for you. They need to be kept in a certain way to avoid chicken illnesses. You will have a sick chicken from time to time and you need to be able to recognise the hidden symptoms fast so they don't get an early appointment to chicken heaven. This is just one small part of what we teach on our chicken keeping courses. However, as this first video shows, owning chickens has repercussions on your behaviour. This is very tongue in cheek and is actually not far from the truth. Enjoy!!! Once you have had chickens for a while you will find some of this behaviour creeping up on you. If you still want chickens after this keep coming back to watch our ever increasing series of videos below:
Ever wondered how those little eggs grow into a viable chick? This video shows just how a bird develops and then is born. The photography in this video by Illustra media from their documentary "Flight: The genius of Birds" is stunning and the story it tells both fascinating and mind blowing.
This animated video from the Poultry CRC shows the complete development of a Chick in the egg until it is finally born into our world. - Wonderful.
