Rise in Back Yard Chicken Coops



   Coronavirus has greatly increased the urge for normal everyday people not normally wanting to be preppers or farmers, to want to do things to be more prepared for the what if scenarios. The current events of the Coronavirus has caused a growing interest in raising backyard chickens for eggs. The problem is that so many have never raised these egg dropping little chickens before so information is crucial.
Hatcheries are reporting a huge surge of new customers so much that they can not keep up with the demand.  Wouldn't it be wonderful to have your own farm fresh eggs every single morning. I know my kids love some eggs every time they get a chance. There are actually more chickens on this planet than people. There are like 25 billion chickens on earth. A mother hen turns her eggs about 50 times a day. Hens can also lay up to 300 eggs per year. Chickens have been domesticated by people dating back as far as 6000 B.C. in Southern China more than 8,000 years. As a chicken gets older they tend to lay fewer eggs but they usually are also larger eggs. Chickens are the closest living relative of the Tyrannosaurus Rex.
  
   There is actually a mushroom called a Laetiporus that tastes almost just like chicken. The Laetiporus is found throughout much of the world. Wiki says " The mushroom grows in large brackets – some have been found that weigh over 45 kg (100 pounds). It is most commonly found on wounds of trees, mostly oak, though it is also frequently found on eucalyptusyewsweet chestnut, and willow, as well as conifers in some species. " It can also be used as a substitute for chicken in a vegetarian diet. Additionally, it can be frozen for long periods of time and retain its edibility.

Every. Single. Morning.
