Chickens are lame. I bought 7 and they made me little to no money. So no I don't think its a good way to make money.

need more then 7 chickens to make any money off em. But once you get the funds buy a solar panel they cost less in maintenance and give more per hour the a beehive does in direct ratio comparison.
the wind mill give the best auto-profit then the solar panel then the beehives Do not know about green houses only referring to the stuff that does not require any work.

zombie: i am largely confused as to what your comment has to do with chickens.

and as for the original questoin, i did try chicken farming, and its not worth the time. you can only let a maximum of 57 eggs accumulate, so if you dont pick them up, there can only be a maximum of 57 eggs for you to pick up. the only way for egg farming to be worth the effort is if the farmer's wife picked the eggs up for you and put them in a larger egg storage space. 57 eggs dont amount to much. of course, with chickens only costing 40 bucks each, you really cant expect them to make you a whole lot.

that's why you buy 400 chickens so the eggs spawn quickly. i pick up the eggs while im waiting for my farms to grow. i usually get about 200 eggs before they're done and it gives me about 6k dollhairs.

i would rather have a cap on number of chickens owned then number of eggs before i have to collect. and i really hate how they spawn all over the chicken pen. i'd rather they collected at a single point.

people pay more for eggs from chickens that aren't trapped in a cage. they did it like that i think to avoid PETA lawsuits for inhumane chicken.. keeping

screw PETA, sure, they look out for animals, but they dont give a stink about humans.

The chicken are fun to looking a time, in the night they sleep, but i don't know if it's depending of the difficulty level, but for me i view i pay a maintenance cost neer 1 euro for two chicken, and sometime you can view thing funny, i have been surprise and it's make me laught to find an egg on the fence, it's a good idea from the conceptor, the only thing i disagre whit the chicken it's the sound, they have one sound they comme always and more often, it's like if it's not a chicken but an human they try to imitating chicken, it's peharp my farmer they become crazy when they are whit chicken Ha ha ha, but the look are well made, and i love the sound of the cocorico...,

the chicken can give some little money for me they give 6 euro by egg, whit 50 chicken i have 50 eggs by day, but anyway, the best thing you can made, it's trying it, and if you don't love, you can sell the chicken to the store for the half of her price, like the tractor...
