I am new here and thinking of raising some backyard chickens! I am thinking of doing it because I think it would be fun, but also to potentially save money.
We eat about 4 dozen eggs per week and spend about $50 a month on organic, free range eggs from a local farm.
If I had about 1 dozen chickens, how much would I have to spend monthly (after the initial start up cost of coop, chicks, etc) to take care of them with organic feed?
We do also have a large yard and there will be PLENTY of bugs. (At least from spring- onset of winter.)
Thanks everyone- I appreciate it!
