    Since my Horses and Dogs are a "business" , I need to find some type of record keeping system for the Chickens.
    I have checked some sites and don't see any kind of book or forms.
    Anyone got any ideas or sites I can go to?
    I have a standard form I use for reconciling my receipts for the horses and dogs, but I also have forms that I keep track of individual expenses for each horse/dog.

    I would love to find something that would list the chickens, hatch/acquire date , and then have something for the hatches produced from each pair or eggs sold from each pair.
    I think the laying hens I can likely do a lot easier, just keep track of # collected and # sold.

    If I can't find anything, I guess I will be spending some time on excel making something.

    If you send me an email, I'd be happy to send you a tracking sheet I use. It is in Excel, so you would need to have that program installed on your computer for it to work.

    I've been playing around with some stuff, but haven't come up with anything I love yet. New ideas are always great.

    Can I post an Excel sheet in here? I'm not sure how else to share it with everyone except through emails.
