Assuming it's borrowed money, the interest paid will be about $10 per
bird per year. If it's paid out of pocket, the interest forgone would
be about the same. Assume 250 to 300 eggs per bird per year, with a
resultant cost of about 40-50 cents per dozen.
Does having quota actually increase the price enough to cover the cost?
Chicago eggs today are just a hair under C$1.00 per dozen (large).
And when it comes to broilers, is not the quota based on square-footage
of the house, rather than the actual number of birds crammed into it?
