Your chickens aren't that old. Won't they start laying again after a bit? My friend had 10 year old chickens that still laid an egg every second or third day.

How much $ per egg do home-grown chicken eggs save?

Expenses: feed, shed, chickenshit disposal, hired chicken assassin fees, other
(Ignore the estimated value of your labor.)

And probably have a better balance of fats, including Omega 3 from eating insects, and other nutrients.

Are they depressed? Molting? Are you giving them extra light? Are they putting on weight or losing? Maybe you should get a chick and let them hear it : )

if we're ignoring labor then feed is the only cost, maybe some meds


so when the going's good you don't mind putting the work in, but at no point would you be running a noticeable profit at this scale

they can't all be molting since june. They stopped when the heatwave hit so it's not a lack of light (access to sun all day) and on the whole they look fine. Maybe i need to worm them.

Quote:
Edible insects are a considerable source of fat. Womeni et al. (2009) investigated the content and composition of oils extracted from several insects (see Table 6.5). Their oils are rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids and frequently contain the essential linoleic and α-linolenic acids. The nutritional importance of these two essential fatty acids is well recognized, mainly for the healthy development of children and infants (Michaelsen et al., 2009). Greater attention has been paid to the potential deficient intake of these omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids in recent times, and insects could play an important role, in particular in landlocked developing countries with lower access to fish food sources, by supplying these essential fatty acids to local diets (N. Roos, personal communication, 2012).

Quote:
The insect fat body is analogous to vertebrate adipose tissue and liver. In this review, the new and exciting advancements made in fat body biology in the last decade are summarized. Controlled by hormonal and nutritional signals, insect fat body cells undergo mitosis during embryogenesis, endoreplication during the larval stages, and remodeling during metamorphosis and regulate reproduction in adults. Fat body tissues are major sites for nutrient storage, energy metabolism, innate immunity, and detoxification. Recent studies have revealed that the fat body plays a central role in the integration of hormonal and nutritional signals to regulate larval growth, body size, circadian clock, pupal diapause, longevity, feeding behavior, and courtship behavior, partially by releasing fat body signals to remotely control the brain. In addition, the fat body has emerged as a fascinating model for studying metabolic disorders and immune diseases. Potential future directions for fat body biology are also proposed herein.

Speaking of fat insects, twice in the past ten minutes a demented drone bee has tried to get through the window, presumably to get at the huge pale flowers on my curtain.

Poor thing. He spent the summer hanging out in the hive, having missed his chance of death-by-mating, helping adjust the hive temps, then was kicked out as autumn advanced so as to not have him eating up resources. At night he sleeps curled up in or under a flower, hoping it has enough nectar to get him started for the day after the sun warms him enough to move. One or two hard frosts and his luck will have run out, his allotted time up.

Also sneak up on them to see if they're eating the eggs they lay, because apparently that's a thing.

this is where you bring him indoors and have him live with you, keeping him warm and feeding him fuck knows what but I saw this on a youtube
