Does it take a lot of energy to raise a chicken?

    If you have a batch of eggs you wish to hatch, the eggs need to be kept between 90 and 100 degrees Fahrenheit for the first week, and then they need to be 5 degrees cooler each week after that. All it takes is a sturdy cardboard box and a 100 watt lightbulb. They need to be turned over. After they hatch, they need a chicken coop. You’ll probably have to build it, then put pine or other woodshavings on the ground of the coop. After that, you’ll need to feed them and harvest eggs (if they produce any). The most amount of energy is the energy you’ll need to physically care for them (feeding and egg-collection), so they’re relatively inexpensive compared to other animals, especially considering you might get eggs out of the deal.
