    It says I'll make almost $200 profit this year! I'm not quite sure how, I guess it's because it spreads your costs (coop, etc) over several years. But it still makes me FEEL good!

    It uses a depreciation method for your coop construction: X dollars divided by the number of useful years. For example, a $500 coop that will last 5 years equals $100 expense per year.
