    My first eggs!!

    $50 used incubator, $6 fertilized eggs, 21 days of incubating, $200 chicken coop, 200+lbs feed and 8 months later....3 eggs from 4 hens.
    According my chicken math, I think I almost broke even! Woo-hoo, I'm a happy gal!

    Yes, thank you! My husband doesn't share my level of excitement though. :)

    Don't ever, ever try to figure out how much it costs to produce a dozen eggs. Trust me, you're happier not knowing. [​IMG]
