Hello BYC, The other day we were having eggs and my wife asked what the ROI would be if we started raising our own chickens. The past month we have started eating a healthier/organic diet and found that it is hard to find organic eggs without spending a lot on organic at the grocery store or making a trip to the Amish communities when the farmers markets are in their off season. Today I started looking at prices and supplies that would be needed to start raising some chicks, and thought it would be fun for our daughter. I did have a rough estimate on things but what would be some unseen expenses? What would you consider as an ROI? Both short and long term?
