Jan was my first month of eggs and tracking. Started with birds in December.
I would have posted the spreadsheet sooner, but wanted to do functional test it first.
I'm just tracking for my self. I may sell/gift some eggs once I get more than a half dozen per day. I put the price box there just to translate the egg production into dollars (Maybe I should have used something more stable like gold?).
I also want to try and track birds/groups for their production, to evaluate their contributions and highlight any illness (drop in production). If someone only has 7 birds, they can retype each birds name to replace the colors.
I have one old hen, a Buff Orpington, who is doing four eggs in a row and taking a day off, then four more eggs. Harder to tell with the other birds because eggs look the same. I also made a size/color chart to see who's who, but I can't get the colors to print close to the egg shades.
Being so new, I don't yet know what is important. Let me know if you have any suggestions.
I saw the other spreadsheet from raisin the same day after I posted mine. I like the way he does expenses. Currently I track my expenses in a different spreadsheet. I also think I can do more just focusing on eggs. I might dump the gross profit column and add another egg column or something.
Thanks for the welcome.
