How prepared is the U.S. for a total collapse?
Our lives are like a pattern – we go to work, get a pay check, pay our bills, buy food, repeat.
People have become so domesticated, we are like a family dog. The dog goes to the food bowl and waits to be fed. People go to the grocery store, or fast food places to buy food.
How would people react if the grocery stores were empty? Would people know how to grow their own food? Would people even have the resources to grow their own food?
Learning from experience
My chicken project has taught me a lot. The coop cost around $700. My 13 chickens at at 4 1/2 months old are eating almost 50 pounds of feed every 2 weeks. A buddy of mine asked what I would do for chicken feed during a SHTF / TEOTWAWKI situation. My reply was the chickens would have to forage. Chickens come from a wild jungle fowl. Even though chickens have been domesticated for thousands of years, they still retain their instincts.
