    i'm so fricking jealous OP. I want chickens so bad. Grew up on a farm and now in the shitty city with costs of eggs being moronic. 8.5 is a good amount and I would if I could. I eat 4 a day on avg because it's just kind of expensive to eat good eggs.

    My nutritionist said 5-6 egg whites per day, but I may be shorter than you.

    If it's about calories, even a dozen eggs a day is less than 900 calories (840 give or take).

    If it's about nutritional macros/micros, eggs are nature's multivitamin, so I'd say no matter what your goal, eggs are goat.

      Thats why its hard for me to stop eating them. Low cal, nutrient rich and i have endless supply.

    I drinked 30-40 eggs a day for 8 months, now do 5 egg scrambled and before bed drink 6. Sometimes when in a hurry drink 10-12 and have an apple.
    I will never stop, LDL has been the same since I started, overall highest colesterol I’ve had was 6.1 if that matters for you. Really not important as colesterol is necessary for optimal hormone balance and not dangerous if your body is able to regulate it

      My LDL was the highest its ever been last summer when i was eating 10/day. I dont care about LDL but my HDL went down and my triglycerides ratio was terrible as well. On a lower fat/cholesterol diet my numbers are better. HDL is always pretty low but still inside range.

        What else were you eating?
        Last year i changed my macro intakes by eating around 1/3 of carbs, protein and fats. Fats are usally the highest intake. all the carbs were from fruits or veggies. When I felt weak and stomach was aching for carbs I ate 200g of pasta.
        Also stopped using vegetable oils. Started using butter or animal fats

        Cute! I like her orange highlights. Is it hard to manage 15 chickens? I can't imagine the frequent coop cleaning being too fun. Despite this I want chickens one day.

          Not too hard. Using deep litter method in 8x8 coop thats 6 ft tall. They have a 16x8 fully enclosed run and a 650sqft fe ced in area for now. Wanting to get more electric fence to give them a larger space soon. Raised them from babies its been a good experience.

        Ngl bros, chickens are just so fricking hot, they literally give you free protein, human females can't even compete.

        As a suburban dude who barely goes outdoors, what's the egg output like for a chicken? Are you able to sustain a diet of 8 eggs per day with 15 chickens?

          Approx 1 egg per day in the warm months. I get 13-15 eggs a day spring/summer/fall and 10-11 per day in winter

    I have 5 eggs + protein powder for breakfast, and then chicken for lunch and dinner. Combined with heavy iron and I've blown the frick up. Go for it OP as long as the rest of your diet is good you're fine

    You don't need too much OP, lol. It's about proteins, right? 4 are enough. You only want around 1g per pound of bodyweight.
