    Just started working on an EXCEL spreadsheet as of the 10th. I am finding myself tweaking it almost daily to keep track of averages and totals. [​IMG]

    OK...another symtom of chicken addiction I guess.....

    YEP...I have a pocket calendar on the wall over the nest boxes...LOL...I write which box, how many, and what time they were collected....now have to condense and organize the data....but I have it written down since first egg back in Aug.....

    WE NEED A SUPPORT GROUP!!!!!! actually I guess we all have one..... backyardchickens.com LOL

    I currently have an Excel spreadsheet with

    - Date
    - eggs/day
    - cost per egg
    - average cost/doz.
    - expenses
    - quarterly cost and annual cost

    I am working on an Access Database so I can keep track of my 5 chickens with criterias such as which one laid an egg for the day, break down "profitability" of each hen and whatever other crazy thing I want.

    Sick, I know.

    I do, but not very well. I write on our desk calendar how many I collect each day, but that is as far as it goes.
