Simply Sef Sufficient Idea of the Month
There's nothing like NOT having to depend on anyone else for your food. Chickens, if you are permitted to have them where you love are absolutely the best at contributing to sustainable living. My layers are quite happy and live in an aviery. I do pay for food for them. If you have the area to let them our they can mostly survive on insects and such, and your feed cost is even cheaper. They produce eggs, and if you keep a rooster, they produce chicks. The straw and chicken waste is awesome for your compost. If it comes to it, you can eat them. (I don't eat my chickens right now, I'd rather have the eggs myself, but I wouldn't hesitate to do it if I needed to. What more can you ask?
