because my grandparents do and they give me eggs for free whenever I visit them
I'm not even a big fan of eggs but I can definitely see and taste the difference between those eggs and store bought eggs
O ya, I live in Canada. Just need a heat lamp if you don't have a barn.

go away tumblr, those kids were shitheads for stealing his chicken and deserve a lot worse than being called mean names.

>mfw already living in a Brave New World
I started off with just a home made coop from the free wood I get from work and then bought 4 chickens for 7$ each roughly. Food is extremely cheap averages around 5$ a month for each chicken

Lucky you, op. All I have are 16 fig trees and a bunch of sunshine blue shrubs and bean stalks. I'm forced to eat like some vegan faggot.
That's too many eggs unless you have a family and neighbors to share with.
I don't own chickens because I already have too much going on in my life, and they would require way too much time and effort at this point. Maybe one I've graduated uni I'll get a few chickens and maybe a goat for milk.
I wish I had chickens. Or ducks, ducks are cool. Bigass eggs. Need a pond though.
I have two chickens. Wish I had more but they can make a bit of noise and I live by an apartment block full of degenerates and I'm paranoid I will come home to dead chickens.
Great to poach fresh eggs.
I sell them to my co-workers and have an abundance that I give to my family.
Once you have a coop all you do is feed them. Don't really need to do much else than that afterwards.
That feel when your coworkers pay for your chicken upkeep.
If you have trees, you can also collect the chicken shit, compost it for a bit, then feed it to your trees. Also, you can arrange your chickens to eat bugs they find around your trees if you are into the whole no pesticide thing.
Then you get organic chicken gains and organic fruit gains all while keeping your organic free range egg gains. Living on a farm is pretty sweet; animals and machines do all the work for you, so you can focus on working out, writing some novel, raising your wife's kids, or whatever you're into.
You have a Geneva in the US?
Dude you should stop naming cities like already existing ones, it's an american hobby it seems.
12 eggs for 99c?
I prefer spending more and have organic eggs. It's quite important especialy if you eat the yolk.
You are what you eat, the chicken isn't different. Mainly you loose the quality of the fats. It's a bit like salmon fed with animal flour, it won't have Omega-3 because he gets them from the fishes lower in the food chain (and they get it from seaweed).
In an organic egg the yolk has a lot of good fats and vitamins. In a shitty egg yolk you might as well eat palm oil (exagerating a bit).
Pic related, I didn't check if the exact ratios are true but it's the main idea.
I used to keep quails for the eggs until the neighbour's cats decided to kill them.
Of course if I killed their fucking cats, or set a pet on them, I'd get in trouble, but they're allowed to kill mine.
I've been thinking about getting a couple of ducks.

after a while it's like fuck you guys. Try to see the good but,still.
How much do they cost to feed?
We had 20-30 cluckers in Bulgaria but I remember having to feed them grain every day, so I'm guessing they're more expensive than storebought eggs and chicken given the ridiculously small production level.

>Call me fact cheker as an insult and like its a bad thing
Why are people this retarded?
Because you're being autistic, it's just idle chatting just nod your head and say ok and do your own research. Having someone constantly fact checking everything you say is annoying
What do you get from each chicken/month, and how many months before you kill them for meat? Because i can get 40 extra large eggs with $5. And chicken meat is pretty cheap where i am. $1.69/lb breast, 59c thighs. Boneless.
Well if you have land (hard part for city plebs), your chickens become a part of your machine that makes money for you.
Their eggs you can eat / sell / make more chickens with, which makes you money. They themselves can be eaten or sold to make you money. They also eat bugs and shit on your trees, which makes your trees more fertile, and contributes to better fruit yields, which make you money.
Get some doges if you have a farm though, dogs will prevent the coons and coyotes from getting your chickens.
Before I had chickens if i walked across my lawn i would find two to three ticks crawling up my leg.
After chickens, no ticks. I used to let them run free in the summer during the day. So really didn't have to feed them. A neighbor dog killed one so only let them out supervised. Trying to build a large mobile pen for them this spring. That wan i can leave them in the pen and move the pen around to different parts of the yard.
Let's get this straight, I got the image on google, first match for "organic vs normal eggs".
I said I didn't check the facts on this image but it goes in the right "direction", meaning yes it will have less vitamins and omega 3 but maybe not in the ratio they give.
You want to eat shit eggs? Go ahead.
You want to educate yourself? Go find the researchs yourself, it's 23:30 here and I'm working tomorow, I don't need to enter a google-war now.
What the chicken eats and his habitat impact the contents of the yolk, the yolk isn't even naturaly yellow in the cheap eggs, they colour it. You don't have to take my word for it, info is aviable.
You want to see the exact composition of each yolk, same drill, look it up yourself and come back later with an appology.
>Nutrition: As with milk and meat, the omega-3 levels of eggs are affected by the hens’ diet and can be increased by pasturing or diet supplementation for either organic or conventional hens. Eggs high in omega-3s are generally labeled.
>Bottom line: There are no significant differences affecting health between organic and conventional eggs.
>Whose only purpose is death
What part of the word purpose makes you go retard?
Empathy for what, an animal brought into existence for human consumption fulfilling its life's purpose?
