    I love keeping records of how many eggs I have got from my chickens since I started.

    I would love to see how you keep your records or any useful methods you use?

    Thank you in advance :D Screenshot_20190118-184152_Count My Eggs.jpg

    If you know who lays what egg, you can be as detailed as you like. Keep a daily list - I write down which hen, how much the egg weighed, circumference and length. It can be invaluable information (objective facts) when deciding whose eggs you might set if you decide to hatch (well, and have a rooster!) from your flock.

    I use an Excel spreadsheet file to record the things I want to record, mostly feed vs egg sales. It has multiple sheets within, some are linked, it does the maths for me.
    You can set it up however you want, and change it if need be...
    ....of course you need to have the program and know how to use it.
