How much does it cost to raise your own eggs?
Once all of our pullets
started to lay, I decided to crunch the numbers and figure out the feed
to egg ratio. I estimated that our free ranging, six month old
flock currently has a feed
conversion rate of
2.1:1 and a feed cost of about $1 per dozen eggs. (We don't
spring for organic feed and do free
range the flock so
that they eat less then you'd expect.)
Our chicken waterer keeps the flock laying at peak production.
