What’s a Chicken Journal?
Keeping notes about your chickens helps you keep up-to-date on their medications, egg production, and other important information. Even if you don’t keep poultry as pets, it’s important to know if they are laying enough eggs to cover the cost of feed. You’ll also want to know when the last de-wormer was given or if a hen has molted, things of that nature.
You’ll want to pay even more attention to record-keeping if you wish to Sell Your Farm Fresh Eggs.
You can organize your chicken notes in a notebook or in a spreadsheet, or you can start a three-ring binder with all of your notes organized with color tabs. The binder is a great way to stash all of the necessary info about your flock along with coop design printouts or other downloaded information.
The Egg Tracker Freebie I’m sharing here is designed to print out and then use a three-hole punch along the left side of the page to prepare it for your binder. Print as many sheets as you like or just save the pdf to your computer and print as needed.

How to Use the Egg Tracker Log Freebie
Once you’ve printed your free Egg Tracker sheet, just make a note of the number of birds in your flock at the top and jot down the starting date in the space provided. This will give you the date range on each sheet for info at a glance.
In the table, note the date that you collected eggs, the number collected, and anything noteworthy. I use this space to track the number of blue and green eggs I get from my Easter Eggers. It’s also good to note any problems with cracked eggs, egg-eating hens, or thin shells.
Now that you know how I use this Egg Tracker Log, let’s get that freebie!

A simple way to keep track of egg production. Is it possible to keep track of each chicken’s production? We hope to start this year.
You can print out a sheet for each hen and label it with her name or ID number to track individual egg production. You would need to know which egg each hen is laying, which may be possible if they lay colored eggs, or eggs with speckles or other distinguishing characteristics. You may need to spend extra time watching to know who’s laying which egg, or you can house them in separate crates (with food and water, of course) for a day or two until they’ve laid eggs. If their eggs look too similar to tell them apart, it can be tricky to keep track of their individual production.
So the egg tracker we made is actually an excel sheet and we have the yearly amounts on it and by month as well so we can see the totals easier.
That’s a great idea, Sarah. Did you purchase this as a product or set it up yourself? Thanks for sharing!
