or should I say, for a lot of eggs. We went from 10 older hens last fall to now 9 old hens( lost one over winter) and 18 young ones. Got a collection, Barred rock, Buff Brahmas, Rhode Islands, Black Giants, Americanas, Buff orpington, few others. Now that weather is getting warmer and days are getting longer, the eggs are starting to come. I was getting 4-5 eggs a week in Dec/Jan, now I'm already getting 6-8 per day.
I can tell the young hens are laying as the eggs are small, I know they will get bigger as hens age. I'me waiting for the Americanas to start, looking forward to some greenies! one of my old girls gave me a double yolk last week, made for a great samich! Should be able to get rid of most of them, my 4 sisters do a lot of baking and they also can sell to girls at work.
Who else has some chickens?
