Hey Poultry Enthusiasts! ?? Ready to take your egg-tracking game to the next level in 2024 without breaking the bank? Look no further! We’re thrilled to present the latest edition of our free Google Spreadsheet – your all-in-one solution for keeping tabs on your clucky companions’ eggcellent exploits. Whether you’re raising chickens, quail, or ducks, our user-friendly tracker lets you log everything from egg sizes and colors to expenses and profits. It’s like a cozy nest for all your poultry data! ?? We’ve been at this since 2018, and this year, we’ve jazzed it up with a EZ-tracking update, if you only want to track total eggs. Already a fan? Skip to the bottom for the freshest version. New here? Dive in, follow us on Instagram, YouTube, Facebook, or Pinterest, and share the egg-love with your fellow feathered-friend enthusiasts. Let’s make this year’s egg tracking as sunny-side-up as it gets!
There are four main areas you can keep track of for your flock:
- The Poultry (Chicken, Quail, and Ducks)
- The Eggs
- The Expenses (There are many)
- The Income (Not nearly enough)
The PoultryAs with previous years you can log as much or as little information about your flock as you want. Highlights include birth, deaths, lay dates and notes for ducks, chicken, and quail. The only required field is a date for laying if you want the hens of all species to average correctly. Don’t worry about perfection, I sometimes can only get a lay date within a couple of weeks depending on how many pullets I have going that year.
The EggsShooooo, folks really have opinions on this area. Track by size, color, species OR skip it all and just put your total eggs by day. We aim to please everyone in this area. So we added a Easy (EZ) option to simply track a total number of eggs per day. It also has an Easy Stats page that pares down all the detailed goodness if you want to keep it simple and sharp and will total your eggs, expenses, income, and profit by the year, month, and week: AUTOMATICALLY!
Wow This Is Overwhelming, Where do I start?First scroll down and make a copy of the sheet into your own Google Drive. Then follow the instructions on sheet one. Summaries and charts are automatically created from entering your chickens and eggs in the various tabs. Don’t worry if you still need help, we have a handy guide from 2018 that still gets you going: Directions on how to use the chicken tracker We also will assist folks (when time allows) via comments or Facebook/Instagram chat. Please remember we don’t make money doing this and we work full time outside of this website.
Can I get an Excel/Paper/Other Version of this Egg Tracker?Please keep asking in the comments below, but for right now the free version is only available via Google Sheets. If we ever have enough interest we will make other options for a small fee.
Can I Use This Egg Tracker For My Small Business?ABSO-FREAKING-Lutely. While we cater to small backyard flocks, we firmly support small farm businesses and homesteads! Please let us know if you use this poultry tracker for your small business. We would love to support you on social media and make changes to assist you. Farmers are the backbone of our food supply! We just ask that no one packages this sheet up and sells it for a profit or posts it as their own work. We make this for free so everyone can enjoy so be kind and don’t take credit for our work.
What’s New for 2024?The Easy Option! We heard you and offered an EZ total so that you can track a simple “total egg” count in the first column of the egg tracker. We also made a Easy Stats sheet that gives you a much smaller view of just eggs, income, and expenses. You still get the breakdown by year, month, and week, but without all the clutter of statistics you don’t care about!
