    You know what's really funny but sad is that I wasn't joking LOL !!! One Silkie alone costs us over $3.00 per egg from vet bills alone - and that is not adding the housing, feed, supplements, care products, etc. She's a little active pistol and gets into more situations requiring vet visits - bacterial digestive infection, bleeding toes/ripped toenails from OCD excessive nestbox splintered scratching, and bruising from being knocked off the nestbox ledge by our sweet but klutzy Ameraucana (my avatar). As added expense we had to build a wider ramp to the nestboxes so if the Silkie gets knocked off again she can just roll down the ramp instead of fall directly to the dirt floor, we lined all the wood nestboxes with plexiglass bottoms so she doesn't get splinters from OCD scratching, and we feed her organic Greek yogurt for her digestive issues (she's our chowhound). And the eggs she gives us are bantam and not even regular sized eggs for that $36/dozen !!! We must be chumps!

    Really nicely done! Am I correct that that is a "pullet shut automatic chicken door?" How do you like it so far? Did you get the solar charger and light sensor as well? That is my next in line purchase... [​IMG] It must be pretty strong to withstand the weight of birds roosting on the open door [​IMG] Good looking birds too!

    Good to know I'm not alone. I have $6.25 invested in the hens, and once the coop got to $1000 I thought I'd better stop counting.
    It's still cheaper than maintaining a boat or horses for that matter.
