How many chickens do you want?

Saw this online. Cracked me up.

Swap "cows" for "chickens" and you'll know what life is like with a bull on the farm. Somehow calves just keep comin'.

  1. True story! We started out a few years ago with 6 chickens, "just for some eggs and meat for ourselves".

    10 years later we have 55 chickens and hatch more out all the time to meet the demand for our eggs and chicken from our customers.

  2. I had four chickens. If the coop had not been so close to the house, I would have had roosters and raised chickens for eggs and some to butcher. Luckily, I only had 1/3 acre lot in the city that limited my ambitions.

    A friend of mine, having recently moved to somewhere more rural than not, now considers his past expenditures for vehicles to be somewhat foolish.

    Because if you do your shopping at Tractor Supply Company, you obviously need a truck, and a small commuter car obviously marks you as being a "casual".

    Besides, you'll never get those fifteen chickens into the back seat without risking life and limb. :-)

  4. Yep. I go into winter with 15, and by the end of summer there are always 60-75 of the darn things... all but 15 of which have to go to Freezer Camp or the Pressure Canner Party before winter...

  5. Over the years I have have several different breeds of chickens. I currently have a 1 year old white leghorn rooster and 5 white leghorn laying hens that are a year old. I also have some 17 week old pullits.6 brown leghorns, 2 red leghorns and 2 white orpington. I think I am well set. The orpingtons I call Nanny #1 & #2. they will be my nest setters when the time comes.
