    Well seeing as we had to build our coop and run because this was our first flock we are no where close to even but it is a start. Also a very intresting experience. [​IMG]

    Chicken math does not involve any profit what-so-ever. It's the journey that counts. Have fun!

    LOLOLOL [​IMG] I purchased 11 three week old true Ameraucana for $20.00. Kept them for 14 weeks. I sold 2 roos for 10$ each, and sold 6 pullets for 12$ each.. After I sold the two roos, I told my dh "Well, I got my money back"--he cleared his throat and started to explain to me that he didn't think so----I stopped him mid-sentence and said "I SAID, I had gotten my money back--- NOT Your money"!! [​IMG] poor DH... My 36yr old daughter --almost fell out of her chair!!
