People gathered around chicken coops is a very common sight around the towns of SAELIG. The chicken coops are full of free eggs, all you need to do is get your hands dirty. The eggs can be sold, eaten, or sent to a business to make something else.
If you're really down on your luck you can always sell some foraged eggs for a few extra silvers. Do keep in mind though that they do run out and the chickens will need time to lay some more.
