Backyard Chicken Eggonomics:
How Much Does it Really Cost to Raise Chickens?
I think generally we all would like to raise chickens, either for the eggs or just as pets. Lets be honest tho, do you really know what keeping chickens costs to raise? I know I didn’t until I read the amazing article from mindyourdirt.com.
They go into detail how much it costs to raise chickens from chicks to full grown chickens that lay eggs. From the initial investment costs to what to expect for your return on investment. James’ example goes into specifics about what it will cost and what you could potentially make with 4 hens. This is a great starter for backyard chickens if you are a novice in this area and want to add them to your homestead.
