In a MarthaStewart.com article, Stewart divulged she first began raising chickens when she bought a 50-acre farm in Massachusetts.
“We converted a homemade plywood playhouse into a secure habitat for our first flock of laying hens, and had a neighbor take care of them when we were gone. They provided us with we needed, and the fun of raising the birds and learning about different breeds hooked me forever,” she stated in the article.
When Stewart moved to Bedford, New York, she explained she increased her flock to 200 hens, in addition to some roosters, guinea fowl, and geese. Due to her increased flock, Stewart redesigned her chicken coop to accommodate more backyard chickens.
Stewart advised, “If you're interested in keeping chickens, keep in mind that each bird will need at least two square feet of space in the coop, and plenty of room (at least 10 square feet each) to roam freely outside. It's also important to buy healthy ones from reputable breeders.”
Stewart shared she purchased her chickens from My Pet Chicken.
