    I have learned so much, even though the birds are only 10 days old. Today I went out and bought a free range locally grown chicken and paid 12.95 and didn't complain about the price. Now I know what it costs to grow a chicken and can appreciate it.

    You should see what a guy charges at the farmers market in my town. His price is 5 bucks and up a pound!!! He's got people lined up too. My fishing buddy's wife is a huge "child of the earth" type who won't eat anything unless it's organic or whatever. She pays the guy 25-40 dollar a piece!! I can't imagine what their food bill is cause she grows none of it herself, veggies or anything.

    I told her to buy some chicks and raise those at least herself!

    That must be one very large bird too I bet. Soon you will have a freezer filled of those little ones you are feeding.
