"The right now's in chickens, kid," I say to anyone who will listen. "Worry about the future when it comes." I say this because you can feed a family of eight for an entire year off the proceeds of one chicken. Use the chicken to raise chicks to sell at a market, use the non-fertilized eggs to feed the kids, use the manure to fertilize the cash crops you grow in the fields. It's protein-based subsistence farming. This is the yearly miracle I work, not because I'm divine, but because I have to.
