Does anyone raise chickens?

Last night we just picked up our meat birds from the butcher. We did 50 of them this turn.
I normally don't like chicken, until we started raising our own. I have yet to find chicken this good in any store.

We also have about 75 layers too.

We're wanting to start raising a few to have eggs. We have a local butcher shop that has fresh chicken on Wednesday. Much better than the regular grocery store.

You should raise some of the Cornish-X. You get them as day old chicks and in 8-9 weeks depending on how you feed them they dress out around 6-8 pounds.

We had about 15 for eggs. Then we slowly started losing them after a storm blew the fence down. :( we need them back.

We did a few last year. 12 meat and 12 layers. When you get 12 birds poopin out eggs you have a hard time trying to eat them all. I can't count the dozens of eggs we gave away every week. Chickens also like to eat the eggs if you crack them open for them. If eggs weren't so bad for you I would find a way to eat them with every meal.

We get 6-7 dozen eggs a day. My wife sells them all, she sells them to local hippies and they can't get enough of them.

Before they started buying them from my wife they were traveling a hour away to buy "free range organic" eggs for $6 a dozen:screwy:

You should trade them to the jipseas, for books.

This reminds me of a joke, Guy buys a talking parrot , takes it home it cusses like a sailor , he scolds it , it still does it, finally it calls his wife some bad words , he grabs it and throws it in the freezer . I little later he remembers the parrot . Opens the freezer hoping it isn't dead, the parrot steps out shivering and says " I apologize for my bad language and manners , but I have a question ..............What did the chicken do? .... :rofl:...... HA HA Termite
