Our Chicken House (Coop) is on order, from those wonderful people at Omlet. We are getting a Red Cube, and five chickens. The Cube is a plastic, easy clean, wash-down Chicken House that can take up to six Chickens in the basic form, or ten chickens if you add the run extension.
The Omlet folks are delivering the compete package in the first half of July.
It may take a month or two for the Chickens to start laying, our expectation is to get six eggs per week per chicken, so that’s thirty eggs a week.
The cost of the coop and all the gubbins runs into almost four figures, so breaking even will take little a while. We’ve had a lot of interest from friends and family wanting to buy any surplus eggs, so we’ll see how it goes.
My wife and I dislike supermarket eggs, they are like munching on puréed plastic. If you buy Free Range / Organic type of egg, they just don’t have that cereal / nutty / strawberry taste with rich succulent yolks. Yum! We hope that our Garden Hens’ Eggs, will taste just like the other great home produced Eggs we’ve enjoyed.
