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.

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 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.
>>
>>35970059
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.

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.

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.

Is the cost-benefit ratio good? E.g. cheaper to buy free-range eggs from a store as opposed to having your own and feeding them?

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.

>>35971936
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.
