Right now, we have about 180 layers all separated by breed/type and sell eggs to hatch as well as day olds. Very heavy March through August and then start slowing down through winter but still hatch to sell. Also right now and during the fall, I bring in new breeding replacements. Lots of chickens and then a pen of Khaki Campbell's and a pen of Guineas. Also have a big mixed pen for egg production that is not counted into the 180 number.
That's a lot of chicken feed . and lot chicken tending . a pen of Guineas has got to be loud . not sure my OH would like that .
