    Chickens I can live with .. ROOSTERS who crow at 4 o’clock in the morning I cannot.

    My sister keeps chickens on her farm in north bend. If you calculate out all the time she spends caring for them plus the added expense of chicken feed etc a farm fresh egg costs about double what you can buy ( close to farm fresh eggs) for at PCC market. Frankly I can’t tell the difference.

    Is the smell, the time, the expense and the work worth it?
    Maybe I guess if you love chickens and want them as pets but NO roosters please. 🙂
