So we have decided to have a go at keeping meat chicks and to see if its cost effective (I'm comparing cost to organic chickens not mass produce full of crap chickens).
So far the cost is 7 meat chicks@ $3ea = $21
Chick Crumbs 20kg = $ 18
Total so far $ 39
I will update cost as we go along, the cost of the feeder, drinker and the brooder aren't included as these are thing I already had. Mind you the brooder cost as nothing to make as it was form materials that we were given and had laying around and the feeder and drinker are both around the $5 mark from a local produce place so not overly costly and they last for yrs (our are 3 yrs old).
