    Another thread here got me wondering, what are you paying for a day old peeper these days? Plain garden variety white leghorns are going for $3.14 each for day old pullets, and the Cornish cross giant meat birds are $2.69 if you get from 10-24, a little less if you get 100 or more. White turkeys are $ 5.80 each for hens, and you can't buy less than 10. Ameraucanas, unsexed, are$5.85 each and again you have to take 10. Plain Pekin ducklings are $6.60.  Seems to me that "they" are trying to discourage the small poultry guy from being self sufficient,  or am I just being paranoid about Big Brother? lol.

I know what mine is fed, and they are not factory jammed full of chemicals.  More expensive to raise your own, but I know where mine comes from.  Free range is the best.

If I still lived on the farm I would still have chickens and a few cows . But after moving to the suburbs don't think the chickens and the cows would work with the neighbors

    We raise our own birds here every year and I love the way they taste.  usually get 10 to 20 birds depending on the deal I can get.  we wait till the birds get a little bigger in the stores and they put them on clearance, happens every year you just need to be there at the rite time.  not sure what the prices are getting here but yours sound about rite.

Have u checked?  Some suburbs are allowing a small flock, maybe 3-4 hens, no roosters.  Cows, I have none either, I just eat lots of venison.  AND I meant no offense to you or anyone with that comment.  Does your local supermarkets sell organic?  Much better tasting.  Have any buds still in the country?  I have a couple in the city that buy the feed and help care for them when I need it, gives them eggs and fresh meat.  The labor, It's a labor of luv for me so no prob.

We eat lots of venison also . And I took no offense we do buy our eggs from a local farmer and yes it is a labor of love . I used to enjoy going out every morning and feeding everything

I love baby  chicks!  I go in TSC just to look at them, when on now rare occasion, they have some.  Can't wait to return from our trip, I might just fill up both my incubators... LOL

That's a bargain in my book. Up here they'd be called fancies and run better than $5.00 each. The more I think about it I'm tempted to set a bunch of eggs from my Columbian hens and take what I get. The pullets can be replacement layers and the roosters will grace the freezer come fall.
