Welcome to ChickenJournal!
I’m Bijaya Kumar, a registered pharmacist by profession and a devoted backyard chicken farmer for over 11 years. I’m thrilled to have you here on my blog, where I share my experiences and insights about the wonderful world of chicken farming.
Raising chickens has been a passion of mine since my family and I started in our backyard over 15 years ago. In 2010, we took a leap and ventured into large-scale poultry farming.
Today, we’re proud owners of spacious farms nestled within enchanting forests. Our 3000 square feet sheds provide a safe haven for our free-range birds, ensuring they can roam during the day and rest securely at night, shielded from any potential predators.
I take immense joy in caring for our diverse flock, consisting of 250-500 free-range chickens of various captivating varieties.
From the majestic Asil (Aseel) to the charming Sonali, the resilient Vanaraja to the unique Naked Neck (Turken) Chickens, and a host of other intriguing hybrids, our coops are a vibrant tapestry of colors and personalities. Each chicken is given special attention and care, ensuring their well-being and vitality.
My background as a pharmacist adds an extra layer of expertise to my role as a chicken farmer. I’m constantly learning and applying my medical knowledge to provide the best care possible for our feathered friends. From vaccinations to medications, I ensure that our chickens receive the necessary preventive measures to keep them healthy and thriving.
Supporting me in this extraordinary journey is my father, a retired Army personnel, who shares my commitment and passion for our backyard flocks. Together, we create an environment filled with love, respect, and an unyielding appreciation for the special bond between humans and chickens.
ChickenJournal was born in 2019 as a dream to share my ideas and experiences in poultry farming. Although I faced some challenges initially, in 2020, I finally launched this blog and started sharing my insights with the world.
Here, you’ll find a treasure trove of knowledge, practical tips, and captivating stories that will both entertain and enlighten fellow chicken enthusiasts.
I invite you to join our thriving ChickenJournal community. Whether you’re an experienced farmer or a curious beginner, this blog is your go-to resource for guidance, support, and a community that shares your love for these delightful creatures.
