Not sure if this belongs here or not...... Just a curious question. Since I currently do not have chickens of my own (but plan on getting some as soon as it is possible), I was wondering if it was more cost effective to keep and raise chickens for the wonderful free-range nutritious eggs that they produce; or is it cheaper to purchase the SAME type of egg at the grocery store? I have been told that it costs more $$ to raise chickens for their eggs than going to the store and purchasing the eggs, but I think the person was talking about the comparison of regular store eggs and not organic free range eggs. Any thoughts or comments? I personally would rather raise the chickens myself and eat the eggs my own hens produce and not give a darn about the cost. at least then I would know where my food comes from and what was in it!
