COST OF FARM RAISED CHICKEN

Each bird cost 1.64 incl shipping
I bought 100# of feed 15.00
.30 per bird
I might have to buy one more bag
So maybe .15 more per bird
2.09 per bird to slaughter weight
I don't really count water

4 # bird dressed out to 3#

.70 per pound right? Even if they ate double what I expect it won't be more than
1.00 Per pound
Here organic chicken goes for 4.99/# at the grocery
Not a bad conversion

Some would believe it is wrong not counting an hourly amount for feeding watering and cleaning, but I don't get paid to cook and clean and do laundry, why would I count that. Did I leave anything out?
