your reasons for having chickens?? seriously...I have been asked SOOO many times in the last week; WHY are you doing this? "What has prompted you to do this" "chicken doesnt cost THAT much honey".. I am trying to see long term here... they lay eggs... we incubate eggs... we butcher chickens.. still have more eggs.. we use said eggs... some are incubated... some are butchered.. a and the cycle continues for what? 25 yrs? 20 yrs?? so my initial $600 investment for the coop and run or so..will last me 25 yrs ... which makes chcken and eggs cheap over the long run...these are NOT my pets.. ... its not that I really care about the organic feature of it all..I really dont.. its just that we think it'll be good for us as a family too..bond, hard work..etc.. what were your reasons?? what has been the weirdest question/answer that you were asked??
