how many Eggs you get today - Page 1532
- Girl, I'm FABulous
Yester i got like 20 outta.......... FOUR LAYING HENS!! How is that plausible? Well one of the hens whom i thought wsnt laying HID her nest, and we FOUND it and it had 15 of HER eggs plus like 4 of ANOTHER chickens eggs/!!
I'm a newbie, so I may be asking something that is common knowledge. How do you keep track of which hen is laying which egg? I want to breed and raise offspring from the best layers, but short of putting them in separate cages (mine are pastured and that thought breaks my heart) I don't have a clue. Not sure I want to put a video camera on the nesting boxes. :-) Any other suggestions?
trap nest boxes. This thread has some plans for it. http://www.backyardchickens.com/t/567357/the-trap-nesting-thread
