I posted this in sunshinechicken e-group, but thought that everyone needs this, even lurkers.
This is daily. Have a table for:
DATE - daily report
AGE OF CHICKS - daily, it may seem obvious, but easier to look at that, than
# OF CHICKS - # of chicks in your flock daily
FEED CONSUMPTION - this will show you if you are feeding enough and properly
# OF MORTALITY - daily, I hope none :)
REASON FOR MORTALITY - so we know how to correct situations. Are there
predators? Were they on top of one another? Color of manure? etc
ACTION TAKEN - what did we do to remedy the problem?
MEDICATION/VACCINE GIVEN - what did we give the chicks?
WEEKLY WEIGHT - weigh every 7days, so we can monitor and anticipate problems
HARVEST DATE - record when you took some for dressing
# HARVESTED - record number, if not all harvested
WEIGHT AT HARVEST - how much did they weigh
