    We live on 12 acres in Maine. Our chickens include Jersey Giants, Buff Orpingtons, Golden Laced Wyandottes, Welsummers, Barred Plymouth Rocks and Red Stars. The Red Stars are laying and we are getting about 14 to 19 eggs a week from these little hens. The Jersey Giants hens turned out to be Jersey Giant roosters, which we didn't want, but, after hand raising them for the last 4 months, we won't get rid of them. We'll move them to another location when we get a chance. We have plenty of space for more and will be trying other breeds over the next couple of years. All 18 of our hens are laying and we've been getting between 10 and 15 eggs a day.
