how many eggs are you averaging at the moment?
« on: March 20, 2006, 21:11 »
just wondered how many eggs people were getting from their hens. last year we were doing well in late march. not so this year: from 4 hens i'm only getting one every other day. i keep meaning to check which are in lay, but haven't done it yet.
what about you?

We've 10 laying hens - mostly sussex of varying colours and 3 cream legbars - and are getting about around 5 per day. I've just put a note up at work to say I'll have the odd 1/2 doz available - but this is later than last year

Sounds pretty good compared with the performance on Jimmy's Farm - what was it, 95 hens gave him  6 eggs one day?  I got the distinct feeling he would have been well advised to buy a book on keeping chickens.

I have 4 ex bats, I get min 1 egg a day (enough for us) sometimes two and last night three. 1 chook Daisey is as regular as clockwork,, you can set your watch by her, Minnie is very strange, the other  day she popped one out at 9.30! PM  :ohmy: I would say on a weekly basis we get about a dozen on average.

We are getting 14/15 most days from around 20 layers- i say around 20 because im not sure which ex-batts are laying, and some are trying to go broody so really i have no idea who's laying :D

I have 20 of laying age (I don't think all the rescue ones are laying though) and I generally get 12 - 14 a day  :)
Staffies are softer than you think.

I'm doing well at the moment - or should I say the girls are doing well. Darcey has stopped laying softies (feed change didn't agree with her) and I am back to 3 or 4 a day from 4 laying hens and 3 or 4 a day from 4 laying ducks  :D

I have 5 girls, 1 hasn't ever laid, I get anywhere between 2 and 4 a day.  It was 4 a day on a regular basis but in the last couple of weeks it has got a bit erratic.
