Re: Do You Raise Any Animals For Food?


Back when we lived on 10 acres we started with a half dozen egg layers. I built an 8x8 shed kit for the coop, then attached a 10x20 chicken wire pen to the back of it. Eventually we added turkeys and Cornish rocks for meat.

I killed and dressed my first turkey, but it wasn’t really a good time. I found a place nearby that would do it for $3 per chicken and $8 per turkey. I dropped them off live in the morning and picked them up in bags in the afternoon.

We never let the kids name them or get attached. The only acceptable names were BBQ, parmesan, soup, Alfredo....

Re: Do You Raise Any Animals For Food?


I was trying to see if I could raise chickens for eggs, since my household eats a lot of eggs. but my small little village in the country won't let me, saying that it would disturb the neighbors. but yet my brother, who lives in NYC can raise chickens. go figure.
