Just finishing my 3 round of meat birds. However, this is the 1st time I've calculated the cost of the birds. Base on my records, I've invested $237.12 to raise 24 birds to butcher. That comes out to $9.88/bird. I don't want to take time to weigh the birds so I don't know the per pound cost, but isn't $10.00 for a roaster sort of expensive?? I don't plan to stop raising the birds but I'm interested in others' costs.
