Adding Up The Cost

Today I realised that adding up the cost of the chickens and ducks to see how much my lovely free range eggs are is a very bad idea. Once you’ve added the housing, feeders, drinkers, medical kit, tonics, feed, bedding and then the vets bills on top it soon adds up to be an expensive hobby!  I sell about 2 dozen eggs a week which gives me £4 and I save another £2 on the dozen or so eggs I eat myself each week and feed for them costs £6-8 a week without adding treats and greens so in this I just about break even, but I will never recoup the initial outgoings. However, it is worth it. I love watching them run around the garden and knowing how happy they are to me makes the eggs worth every penny.
