I lost 2 of my layers yesterday to roaming dogs and a 3rd that I'm trying to nurse through a severe injury. The State Trooper told me I should submit a value for my chickens and I'm not quite sure how to go about figuring this. Both chickens were raised from day olds. They cost 2.10 each. One was a Golden Comet who laid daily, the other an Aurucana who laid every other day (blue/green eggs). They were about 7 months old. They were fed organic poulty feed (about $22 a bag) and supplied eggs for our family. Do I factor in any other costs? Coop? Time? I would think they're each worth about $20-$25, does that sound right? Or are they worth more? What about the injured one that I'm having to nurse back to health? Does she factor in to the value as well? Thank you.
