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.
