This may sound like a silly questions to some people but once you know the answer or once you have been homesteading for a while you will find you didn't really know the answer before.....How many chickens does it take to get one egg?

Ronnie and I had been talking about buying some chicks for meat this year.  We couldn't make up our minds what breed we wanted.  I asked several people what they prefer and got a different answer from each person.  Basically, I knew what I didn't want.  I did not want any of those that are breed to grow so fast they do the "squack and flop" and basically do nothing but sit at the feeder and eat until it's legs can't hold it's own weight.
