My birds are wonderful... I love them. But I was thinking as DH and my neighbor were finishing up the electric in the coop how much it would cost for each egg to make up for the cost of getting them, fixing the coop, and food. $300 + for fixing up the shed which is now the coop. $5 a block for pine shavings. Once a month we completely change out the litter. 3 not including what was in the brooder. $13 and up a 50 pound bag of food that lasts 2 weeks. SO that's 8 bags so far $120 for small shipments of birds from MPC. Yeah I know I should have just gotten 25 birds. $60 for makeshift run for outside the fort knox run. OK almost $600 for 0 eggs so far... LOL! I need at least 1 $600 egg soon!
