November 2011 chicken financials

November report:  I am positive again by $13.58 for the month on an average 26.3 hens laying.  My net income total is - $261.27 for the year .  I had $46.42 in expenses for feed (200#) this month.  We collected a total of 233 usable eggs (decrease of 20 eggs)  averaging 7.8 eggs/day collected.  My productivity for the month was 30% (decrease of 6% from last month).  The chickens ate 0.86# food/egg (a decrease from last month of 15%).   It cost $0.20/egg or $2.40/doz for feed (a decrease of $0.36/dozen over last month).  My monthly net income is a loss of $23.75/month this year (a decreasing loss of $3.78/mos).  It is slowly getting better despite production dropping off.  I keep changing the light bulb in the chicken coop.  The chickens keep flying around and breaking the light bulb.  I keep changing the bulb every week.  Gonna need to fix this eventually.
