Mother Earth News and Friends

Feb 15, 2021

In this episode of Mother Earth News and Friends, Queren King-Orozco, known as Q, shares piles of information for beginners on how to get started with chicks. Learn how to prepare for them and what to do once they arrive; how to house them; and lots about their health and behavior.

Queren King-Orozco lives on a homestead with her family in the Kansas prairie with a free-range flock of 45 hens. This is their fourth year selling eggs to their community. You might recognize her from previous Mother Earth News videos, especially the chick hatching episodes. Queren has spent several years gardening, chicken keeping, and learning aromatherapy from Aromahead Studies.

Raising Chicks is a podcast drawn from the audio of the MOTHER EARTH NEWS online Fair course “Poultry 101’, sponsored by Nutrena and Murry McMurry Hatchery. To sign up to view the full video series, go to:
