Lights and Total Lifetime Egg Count - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Most of mine are done by 5-7 years old with an occasional egg after that.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.

I have a 9+ Buff Orpington that will lay an occasional egg. Her eggs are very thin shelled and rarely make it out of the nest.

 

I also have a 9+ Booted Bearded Millei Fleur Feather Legged Bantam that laid over a dozen hard shelled small eggs last year.

 

Both birds were raised together as chicks. Both still seem healthy and happy.

 

I have several 8+ Reds and Rocks that are still occasionally laying, but I have no idea which ones or how often. I can tell when an older hen lays though. Their eggs are "different".

Heat the nesting boxes to stop eggs from freezing.

Forever Water Heater one that lasts.

Unfrozen Nipple Watering for those cold days.

Removing dust the easy way.

They do look like old hen eggs.

I like to describe them as having "character" as they stand out from the rest... :/

Check out the YouTube video I just posted. I'll show you how I got the chickens to lay eggs after they went on strike!
