Chicken Updates!

So, with the beginning of the new year, I took some time and worked on my Chicken Egg spreadsheet where I record all the eggs and expenses of my chickens.


After looking at how many eggs we had our first year compared to now, I really miss the ISA Brown chickens.  You'll see from the numbers that they just beat the Barred Rock chickens.  I have 3 Olive Eggers that have yet to start laying, so I can't wait for them to start.  Hopefully, Egg production will increase soon.

So, in 8.5 months, we had more eggs than we did in the last 12 months.

Pricewise, things are well.  Each egg is costing me 23.9 cents and egg at the moment.  That cost does not include my coop.  Including the cost of our coop, it's 50.3 cents per egg.

That's $2.87/dozen without the coop, and $6.03/dozen with the coop included.


Overall, I'm pretty happy.  We've not lost any birds to predation, which is great!  We lost one bird to being sick, and 3 when they stopped laying, and we turned them into bone broth. That's been some great broth!
