I have four hens and too many eggs.....our neighbour also would like chickens and we thought sharing the responsibility, cost and eggs would be a good solution - so we don't have the burden of full time care and two coops with not many chickens in close proximity. But we have no idea how to suggest dividing the cost and responsibilites. Has anyone done this and can offer any suggestions or direct me to a thread where this has been covered? Some initial thoughts I had were odd days and even days - we feed/collect on alternate days. Or 4 days on 4 days off. Our kids are in the same class at school also so communication is easy. I paid the initial set up costs but I'm not too bothered about that but perhaps it would be fair that they bought the next 2 lots of food. Would really like to avoid cash exchanging hands and being too particular about who gets how many eggs. Thanks so much in advance!
