Babies A’Poppin

Tuesday, June 15th, 2010

As soon as that first baby popping out comes with an extra 24 hrs in a day, I’ll be happy to spend that extra time raising chickens, harvesting veggies, and going to little markets 2-3 times a week, planning a wholesome, balanced diet around whatever I find that looks to be at its peak of freshness.

So if you buy a $440 chicken coop, and eggs are about $.20/each, that means you’d need to eat 2,200 eggs to recoup (recoop, HAHA) your investment. With two hens each laying an egg a day, you’ll break even in about three years.
