Why Raise Chickens?
Here are a few of the most frequently expressed reasons people raise chickens:
Easy and inexpensive to maintain (when compared to most other pets)
Eggs that are fresh, great-tasting & nutritious
Chemical-free bug and weed control
Manufacture the worlds best fertilizer
Fun & friendly pets with personality Certified Humanely Raised Poultry
Our coops exceed standard conditions for the raising and care of poultry (and its a nice place to visit!)
Blue Star Ranch Chickens originate only from parent stock that are certified US Pullorum -Typhoid (NPIP.TX) and US Avian Influenza clean. Further, we do not attend poultry shows or exhibitions that could affect our chickens health.
(its important to purchase your chickens from one location that is free from diseases and NOT to trade or purchase fertile eggs for hatching, chicks, pullets or hens of any age. Mixing your flocks with poultry of unknown health may spread serious or fatal illnesses in your flocks)
(We do not ship chickens, consider asking a friend or family member to pick up chickens and meet you halfway if distance is a consideration.)
Here at Blue Star Ranch we offer "eggspert" ™ advice on our website for the raising and care of natural healthy cage free chickens. Its my goal to not only offer the best chickens in Texas but to provide education and support from years of my farming experience and knowledge. Further, Blue Star Ranch supports the zero waste program that reduces food waste.
Blue Star Ranch gives back into the community and we are proud to share our knowledge with our community neighbors. We are supporting a community coop program to help our neighbors learn to reduce food waste and to educate people on raising chickens. Raising a coop of chickens provides food from eggs, meat and gardening from the compost.

"I believe in the power of Chrisal's Stabiotic products for my chickens health. Its the ONLY brand that I recommend and use in our own chicken coops. No farm should be without these natural probiotic products. Bad bacteria that cause diseases in animals is the WORST predator. You can't see the bacteria like the other predators that harm your chickens. This is why you need Organic Chrisal's Stabiotics for your farm animals"
