Up here, people are starting to get chickens in many places. They are getting tired of buying commercially bought flavorless eggs from the store. If
people say that there is no difference in the taste of store bought and free range eggs, I think they are a little nuts or have had their tastebuds
compromised by something. As far as nutrition, maybe with the current flawed way they are testing, they are much better. The chemicals of an egg
from a free range chicken have much more protective and calming chemicals. They only test for certain things in those nutrition sites, the number of
things they test for is slowly increasing but it is in no way complete yet. Everyone knows that food is just made up of vitamins and minerals now,
they have identified lots of other chemistry now that is valuable to good health. And this is just a start to our increasing knowledge of the
People were also tired of worrying about all the risk of buying eggs that have bad bacteria in them, being older the risk of contamination is higher.
There are so many doing it, they are applying to have zoning changed and they are accomplishing this. It is not farmers anymore, even the richer
people are doing it. It has become a fad of the elite to raise their food. I would like to see them get chickens at the white house, they put in
their gardens. People have to learn that relying on the fragile economy is not only unwise but actually unhealthy. Instead of complaining about your
neighbor raising chickens, talk to them about it. One rooster is enough and you should not have too many in town. six within the city limits is
enough to supply a family with eggs. Make sure to clean their coops and process the waste into fertilizer quickly so others don't complain. If done
right, chickens can stabalize a neighborhood, and remember everyone has rights in this country, not just people who don't want things in their
neighborhood. I think little stores should be within walking distance also, not stuck in a mall ten minutes away.We have sure messed up this reality.
We need to straighten it out.
The neighbors chickens bothering you? tell them you need a dozen eggs every couple of weeks to ease your stress. Say it with a smile, and remember
that eggs do cost money to produce. Maybe you can get your eggs at a couple bucks a dozen or even less. It costs overall about a buck and a half a
dozen to get eggs, that includes costs of the hen, food, and some meds if they get sick. Occasionally you have to superglue a beak on too. The cost
of the enclosure is not included but won't bring the price up much if it is used for many years.
