Sounds like a good idea, how expensive are chickens??
yep it is a pretty nice place...haha awful rural though lol
chickens really aren't expensive...it kinda depends on the breed mostly, but for some of the ones i had if you buy them as little day old chicks from catalogs they are maybe $2.50 $3.00 a piece...but thats or females, you can buy them "straight run" which is you may order 20 chickens for 1.20 a piece and you don't know the gender, you could have 19 females and one male or any other combo. those are cheaper to buy but you usually get alot of males...which nobody wants unless they plan on trying to hatch chicks. that and it takes a long time to get them mature, about 6 months for the hens to start laying. but to buy a full grown laying hen they are about $11-$12 a piece. i only had maybe 8 to 10 chickens...that was about all i could handle! when you get between 4-6 eggs a day they pile up awful fast lol
