If you plan on raising a flock of any size, whether it’s 1 bird or 30, you’re going to need poultry supplies. The supplies you’ll need we’ll greatly vary depending on the size, nature, and purpose of your flock. Other things like your climate and the size of your yard or farm will also come into play.
For example, if you plan on raising a flock for their eggs, you’ll need proper nest boxes. If you want to raise more chickens, you might need things like hatchers, brooders, incubators and more. If you plan on raising a flock for meat, you might need some processing equipment. If you plan on just raising ducks as pets, you may not need any of those things!
The amount of feeders and waterers needed will depend on the size and nature of your flock. Do you have chicks? Do you have larger birds? This all comes into play when you’re deciding the type of and amount of feeders and waterers to get.
There’s also all sorts of other accessories and poultry supplies to help your flock reach their full potential and be as happy as possible. You can get medicated or specialized poultry feeds, first aid supplies, and other things to help foster good health among your flock.
Whatever you may need for your flock, there’s probably been something designed to help you out. You just have to look!
