5.- The most expensive part of owning/keeping chickens is the initial start up costs. Building a coop and run, buying the chicks, raising them with supplemental heat until they are old enough to go outside, the feeders and waterers. Once you get past all of that, it's just feed and bedding, which, for a small flock should only run about $20 a month.
6. 6 hens will produce 4 to 6 eggs every day. That means you will get about 28 to 42 eggs a week. Unless you all eat eggs for breakfast every single day, you will have plenty of eggs.
7. If you can handle taking care of a rabbit, a flock of chickens will be easy. They require about the same level of care as a cat. Chickens need food, water, a safe place to sleep and lay eggs, and room to run around. That's it. I spend about 30 minutes a week taking care of the flock, and that includes 11 adults, 5 6-week olds, and 11 3-day olds. They are so easy to care for, and so much fun to watch, they are addicting.
Beware chicken math...
Dude that is exactly what I've been trying to tell him this hole time! I guess he's worried about stuff like smell,noise and all that other stuff he put in his easy,but he really is not getting the click that I will be in charge of my chickens (plus my sister who wants them,but not as nearly as bad as me)He is like"well what if you can't take care of them by your self or what if you get sick? I'm don't want to end up taking care of your chickens."How did I reply?" Um don't you remember when I was sick last time I took care of Rex(he is my pet bunny) every day that I was sick.".Btw when I was sick last time I could barely walk and I didn't just take care of Rex I also helped take care of the family cat.Feed him change his litter box and the like.
