My husband Chuck had an idea so that we can have organic eggs that we can afford. Our good friend Scott has a chicken coup at his house and it was just sitting there empty. We priced it out and now we are paying around .32 cents an egg. At $6 a chicken we will break even in about three weeks and then we start saving around $8 a week.
I'll update as the chicks mature and we are able to collect eggs. I am very excited about this as are the kids. Here are some pictures of Rylee, Zoe and Talia who each chose a chicken today and named her.
Rylee is so excited, holding her new chicken that she named Carmel.
This is Talia trying to pet the three chickens, Coco, Carmel and Bette Midler. Bette Midler is the redhead :)
