Average Number of Eggs Per Day

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I am interested in getting some chickens for egglaying for fun and maybe make a little money as well. I am thinking about getting Rhode Island Reds as I hear they produce nice big brown eggs. I was curious what other peoples thoughts are and about how many eggs a day can a Rhode Island Red lay a day. Any advice would be helpful.

Thanks

Mark

It takes a little over 24 hours for a chicken to lay an egg.  So pretty much 1 egg a day is the absolute best you can get.  Occasionally they do take breaks...molting...winter etc.
