    I set up a simple spreadsheet--do you know how to use Microsoft Excel or similar programs? I set mine up to take into account the different categories--food, bedding, housing, other infrastructure, new chicks, etc.--and add them all up, as well as adding up the eggs and meat that I got out of it, and estimating how much those would have cost if I had bought them.

    You could also use Access to create a database then any time you'd want some very specific information you could run some intricate searches.. It could allow you to be a lot more specific than you could with Excel.

    You could also use ti to track egg production, meat production, family trees and similar..

    You could also use a free online database creator..
