That is why most of us just go buy chicken at the market. But you never know when the day will come that you need to know how to do this stuff. And from what I hear home grown chicken tastes much better that factory chicken.. But honestly I could never tell the difference..:)

We produce our own free range, organic chicken meat and it carries much less fat than factory chicken....and it tastes better.

Our costs were lower than you've indicated but, as you've observed, it's valuable experience. If your chickens were free range, you should be comparing the cost of your meat with free range chicken which will be more expensive than the factory-produced stuff.
