    Hi,

    Ever wondered whether your girls are pulling their weight or just freeloading?

    Here is what you need:

    We started getting 3 cooks in October and just for the fun of it my seven year old son and I decided to keep a spreadsheet. His interest has since moved on, but I've dicovered FreeBasic and got a little into programming.

    The result is this little application that helps you track your eggs and eggspenses and produces simple statistics and charts to give you an idea how the ladies peform under the prism of economic rationalism...

    Hey Gartenzwerg, welcome to the forum.

    I edited your link for now since direct links to zip files makes me a little nervous... especially from new members. (I'm pretty careful about viruses and there are some computer novices on the board).

    Email me the following to inspect:

    1) A zip of the files
    2) A screenshot of the application

    I'll take a look and let you know if it's cool to repost the link. email me: nifty @ backyardchickens.com
