This thread is FOR THE PEOPLE!!! We can talk about whatever you want
I have 3 chickens. I could comfortably have 5 in the coop I built, but I'd have to expand it if I wanted more. Each chicken lays 1 egg a day. They're 3 different breeds, so 3 different egg colors (green, light brown, dark brown).
Care for the chickens couldn't be easier. You drop in some food into the feeder anytime it's low, change the water everday... regular pet maintenance stuff. I have to change out the bedding in the coop every other week. That takes maybe 20 minutes. The old bedding can be used as compost.
My chickens also have access to my backyard for a few hours everyday, so they can be considered free range.
One of the coolest things about having your own chickens is you never have to refrigerate the eggs. If eggs are not initially refrigerated, you never have to do that. You only have to do it if they've previously been refrigerated, if that makes sense.
