My husband jokes with people that our eggs cost $100 a dozen because our chickens have cost us so much. I never knew I would love having chickens so much and I want more, however I get the look when I mention it. I don't think he really cares about the birds it's the cost involved. Can chickens ever pay for themselves? What ways have you found to make having chickens affordable? I'm looking for options.... so I can get a few more!
