I know we are never going to make loads of money with the chickens but I am keeping track of how long it takes to break even.
We have bought them at the wrong time as the 2 we have laying at the moment will start to moult soon and then the egg laying will slow right down or even stop.
We bought the chickens for £15, 2 are laying and the other should start within the next 8 weeks or so. Their food & straw has cost £20.33 so far, although that will last for several weeks yet. So we have an outlay of £35.33 and we have had £2.33 worth of eggs. So we are on -£33.00 as of today.
