RDP Sunday: Thread

Today’s thread is a post card I received yesterday. It seemed to have come from a group of chickens, but it was an invitation from a chicken farm in the region to adopt a chicken. All the eggs that the chicken laid would be my own personal eggs delivered to my house. The chickens tell me that they are fed with biological food including herbs and Omega 3 whatever that is. Delivery would be every two weeks, but the price of 35 or 32 Swiss Francs for 10 or 6 eggs I found to be a little expensive. You also have the reassurance that when your chicken no longer lays eggs he will not be disposed of as most chickens. No, he goes to a retirement home for chickens to live his life until he days are done. How reassuring, but I do not think I will take advantage of this offer.

  1. The expense must help pay for the “retirement home”, post egg career, too, though, like you, the price seems pretty dear for a variable number of eggs. If you get a prodigious hen, maybe you get a reasonable number of eggs; get a slacker or one just starting, you get just a few eggs, and they may be undersized compared with other hens’ output. I’d pass, too, though the idea sounds wonderful for chickens since retired commercial chickens become meals for other human customers.

  2. -A bit pricey, indeed. However, from what I gather it’s 10 eggs (or 6) every two weeks but the price is for a month so 20 eggs for 35 SFr – but even so! One question, though: “You also have the reassurance that when your chicken no longer lays eggs he will not be disposed of as most chickens. No, he goes to a retirement home for chickens to live his life until he days are done. How reassuring, but I do not think I will take advantage of this offer.” How could the chicken lay eggs if he was a he? 😮
