Consecutive Days Laying

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I have a Rhode Island Red that waited 9 months to lay her first egg, and now she is almost a year old and has laid 40 consecutive days. Is that normal?  What are some of ya'lls best  egg laying streaks?

Great job! My 3 leghorns laid eggs since 16 wks & 17 wk olds, did not skipped a day until the 3 month, and only skipped a day or 2 within a year of laying.

EE/Amberlink cross started at 19 weeks and had these streaks:

49, 34, 20, and a 42 in between July and April...never took more than a day off in that time.....

......she's slowed down now at 2 years old.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!
