Is a flock of, say 50 chickens any harder to care for than 10 chickens? I would like to get about 50 chickens for my egg project. Obviously, 50 chickens would need five times the coop space, run, and feed. Plus all the extra costs. My thinking is, besides the costs, if you're going to put the care into 10 chickens it will be the same as putting the care into 50 chickens. You're going to be out there taking care of them anyway, whether its 1 or 5 or 10 or 100. And you might as well, since you're out there feeding them anyway, get more eggs out of it to possibly sell. But anyway, my real question is are 50 chickens THAT much harder than 10 chickens?
