    Do you have that many chickens and breed that often?

    To me it just seems a waste of, from 67 up, money. Cost management can be done using something as simple as wordpad. All your doing is making a list. If selling eggs and chicks then another column to list income. Another ledger (page) for dated entries for notes and observations. A person can manage money and all aspects of husbandry on a slew of animals on two pages.

    I keep an egg tally on the calender myself and a list of cost on a notepad page on my computer.

    No, I do not raise that many chicks. I have been writing everything down on paper and have a ...eh, sort of scrap book of chicken info. I think more then anything I want to be able to budget my money for the chickens accurately without having to manually write it out and then calculate it all. I guess I am just being lazy.
