Wood Prices

Have you seen the wood prices lately? Wow did I receive a shock when I walked into the local lumber yard and I found that plywood is now $30/sheet and 2x4x8 is $10/stick.
My first lot of wood for the chicken coop cost almost $200!
To add insult to injury, my initial plans fell short of what works so I have to buy some more wood.
So how much do chickens cost?
Coop: Over $200, Chicks: $100, Feed: 8x$14 so far.
Production? Zero so far. Yikes.
I need to get 130 dozen eggs to cover my costs based on what they cost at the grocery store.

So what does this mean for future homestead plans? All on hold until either income improves or costs come down.
