I would love to have chickens inhabit a small coop in my yard for many reasons. First of all, having your own home grown eggs whenever you wanted would be amazing! The fact that you know where your eggs are coming from, what the chickens eat, and how old the eggs are is awesome. You can’t get fresher than eggs from your backyard.
Secondly, we buy a dozen of organic eggs when we go grocery shopping. They are expensive! So, having our own chickens would help us save money. If we had extra eggs, we could sell them. Now we’re making money. Lastly, it would be cool for me to have chickens as a hobby. I love animals, and it would be something fun to do.
So not only would it save us money, but we’d eat better quality eggs, I’d have something fun to do, and we’d cut down on our environmental impact by having the chickens in our backyard.
So. Here’s where you come in. Whose side are you on: mine or Mr. Money’s? Should we get chickens?
