Our goal for 2021 is 500 chickens divided into 20 shares (25 chickens), each share would be priced at $24/chicken ($6/lb at an avg of 4lb/bird). That would basically cover the cost of the operation at 500 birds.
The pricing is $600/share half up from and then the rest (based on total weight) at each delivery (see schedule). So you could end up paying less but never more than $24/bird; better feed conversion means more food at a lower cost for everyone.
The whole operation will be local, chickens are hatched in Salinas, feed is grown and milled around Modesto, they will be raised in Courtland and slaughtered in Franklin.
