First off this is not being asked in a judgmental way, we all love chicken.(Heck I had a chicken sandwich for dinner and we have 20 egg laying chickens). But I gotta ask why spend $2-3 on a chick, who knows how much money in electricity, food, bedding, coop, run and all the other costs only to slaughter the chicken, then have to clean it and cook it. Vs going to Sams Club or your local grocery and getting an already cooked full chicken for $5-6 each. I'm guessing because you know exactly whats going into the chicken? Wanting to get educated here as I know there's a ton of people that raise broiler/meat chickens and we're clearly missing something? Thanks in advance!
