September report: I made $21.52 for the month on an average 28 hens laying(a increase of 8 hens/day). My net income total is - $257.91 for the year . I had $59.48 in expenses for feed (250#) this month. For the year, my monthly expenses are $98.79. We collected a total of 316 usable eggs averaging 10.5 eggs/day collected. My productivity for the month was 38% (decrease of 13% from last month, I had to add in all the chickens that are old enough to lay). The chickens ate 0.79# food/egg (a decrease from last month of 16.4%). It cost $0.19/egg or $2.28/doz for feed (an decrease of $0.36/dozen over last month). My monthly net income is a loss of $28.66/month this year (a decreasing loss of $6.32/mos).
This is starting to look better for the year. I would prefer to only loose about $12-15/month as this is our normal egg consumption but I am still not there yet.
