    how many chickens would you get to get about 5 dozen eggs a day and what would you feed them??

    well... 5 dozen is 60 eggs, and a hen lays an egg a day, so I'm figuring you'd need at least 60 birds, if not a few more.

    i would say like 70 birds cuz some take days off.. cuz they dont always lay every day. so yeah.. ALOT of birds
