The Cost of Chickens

Three-sided pony shed that's been sitting vacant for a few years: Free

Scrap lumber from various building projects: Free

Five gallon buckets that my husband collects from everything he can: Free

Small dog kennel that we use on occasion for puppies: Free

PVC pipe from a show pig water system, sitting around collecting dust: Free

Shavings: $10

Chicken wire: $20

50 pounds of chicken feed: $15

10 chickens: $20

Four eggs on the first day you have chickens: Priceless. (Or $16.25 per eggs, depending how you look at it.)

For once, my husband's packrat ways have been a huge bonus.
