What kind are the best layers? - Page 2

post #11 of 16

Healthy happy hens are the best layers. ;) 

Most breeds labeled as layers will produce 5-7 eggs a week.  Look for breeds that do well in your area.  Heat tolerant/ cold tolerant etc. There is a tool on here for narrowing down breeds based on size, eggs, temperament, and the such.

Although in the end it all comes down to chicken math.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

"Where are we going and why are we in a handbasket?!?"

I found this awesome quote on a bumper sticker, put one on my car and for some stupid reason thought I might be "offending" some people, what a bunch of PC BS! I thought it summed things up perfectly, (politically speaking!) NOW, we're so far down that road, I think we've become numb! What does the future of our great nation hold? Yikes!

Welcome to BYC -- that quote has been my signature for some time now - no one has voiced offense :idunno
