Chickens are probably the perfect livestock for a long term SHTF survival situation. Unlike a lot of farm animals, chickens will produce food every couple of days in the form of an egg. Once the chicken has matured and stopped laying, the chicken can be butchered and eaten.
One of the problems that people will experience after SHTF will be food fatigue. Even though the chickens may be laying eggs everyday, once food fatigue kicks in people will be sick of eggs.
To help ward off food fatigue, here is a list of various egg recipes.
3 fresh eggs.
1 cup sweet milk.
3 level tablespoonfuls of flour.
Place a small pan on the range, containing one tablespoonful of butter.
Place 3 tablespoonfuls of flour in a bowl, mixed smoothly with a portion of the cup of milk, then added the three yolks of eggs which had been lightly beaten and the balance of the milk and a pinch of salt.
Stir in lightly the stiffly-beaten whites of eggs.
Pour all into the warmed fry-pan and placed it in a moderately hot oven until lightly browned on top.
The omelette when cooked should be light and puffy, and remain so while being served.
Double the omelette together on a hot platter and sprinkle finely chopped parsley over the top.
