I agree. Same goes for the eggs.

57 chickens: Roosters BA=Sambo, Ameraucana=Colonel Sanders, Black Australorps, Buff Orpingtons, RIRs, White Leghorns, Amercaunas (Dingbat, MY FAV! Pet!), Barred Rocks, 20 new chicks: Welsummer, Delaware, BCMs, Speckled Sussex, Exchequer Leghorns, White Rocks, Golden Buffs. I love a mixed flock. Kitties too! 10 baby ducks too.

I agree a person does not do this for the money. However when I figure that my neighbor was selling processes meat birds for $10 a piece (frankly I think a person could charge 15 and you would still have people pounding down your door) My cost per bird so far is not too bad.
As long as you do not include the cost of the coop wink.png

or the cost of feeding  the parent stock over winter.

 

Summer chickens are cheap. open the door and let them go find food...Winter not so much...

Composting is good for the environment..
Composting Geese is better for the environment
Composting ducks is best for the environment.
Start your composted Duck pile today,
if you do not have your duck
Borrow a neighbors duck to compost own...

That is true, I have not had that cost yet. But I just call them layers and count it against my eggs big_smile.png. Those things are not cheap.

LOL another place I lose money!  There is no way I can produce eggs for what I sell them for.
