I have decided that I should keep note of how much I spend on growing my own food in order to share with you all how much grow your own saves. So what have we spent this month?
We brought 5 quail for £16. With these, I also brought some food, bowls and water bottle coming to £9.76. As the cage was made out of bits I had lying around we haven’t spent a huge amount of money on these.
However, as I built the second cage I brought wood for this which came to £22.76.
I also brought some layers pellets and a big bin to store these in. A 20kg bag of layers pellets cost £13.90 from Amazon (click on the picture to find out more)
The bin store I bought from Poundsavers for £9.99. (click on the image below to find out more from a similar item on Amazon).
General poultry costs.
As there are items that I buy that are brought for both quail and chickens I thought I would cover these in the 1 section. This month I spent £2.00 on a bag of woodchips from Wilkinsons. This is used for bedding in the coops.
This month all I have spent on the allotment is £10.00 for manure that I buy from a local stable. This manure is really well rotted its great for building up my beds.
Totals for November.
From the above figures, we can see that
- £89.36 on the quail project
- £2.00 on general poultry costs
- £10.00 on the allotment
This means the total spend in November is £101.36.
