I did a post about this when I processed mine a few weeks ago. We ended u with 141.8 pounds of meat, and after the cost of the chicks, and the feed it was $1.42 per pound for the chicken we raised. In our local grocery store on a sale day I can find Perdue whole chickens for .99 cents a pound, on a good day it is $1.29 cents a pound and can go as high as $1.59 per pound.
Sure what we did was a lot of time and effort, but in the end, it was completely worth it to me, and very competitive to grocery store prices and I'm getting a better quality product in the end.
We also processed ours ourselves, and I did not factor in any of the building materials.
