Chicken by the Numbers.

I finally did the math, no small task for me, on exactly how much these first broilers cost me per pound.

I bought 12 chicks, got one free for $23.52. Spent $19.99 on materials for to construct a chicken tractor for them to live in. Bought four bags of feed at $11.99 per bag. I ended up with 11 edible birds and 42.4 lbs of chicken in the freezer.

Total cost $93.08

Price per pound $2.19

Eating chickens you just raised in your own front yard ...
