  • A friend of mine has 18 chickens who all get the same food. One of her chickens lays an egg that tastes horrible. She describes it as you were tasting someone's bad halitosis. She figured out which chicken it was & it constantly lays these horrible tasting eggs. Is there a reason for this & can anything be done to change it. She is sending me a photo but from her description, I suspect it is a Rode Island Red.
    How dark are the eggs compared to a Marans egg? What size egg do they lay and how many per year?

    Size is large to jumbo. As you know, pullet eggs take some time to get some size on them. I don't set eggs below 50 grams but of the 50 eggs due to hatch in 2 days, they rangege from 50-80 grams. I have to use some jumbo egg trays in the setter to hold them. They don't fit in normal chicken egg trays.

    Hi, sorry I did not follow up with the subject but now Im ready for hatching. my zip code is 10017. do you have available now? and you estimate how long it takes to receive them?
    Hello! How long will it take for chickens to transition over to pellets? I tried in the fall for almost two weeks and it seemed they weren’t eating at all, so I caved and switched back to crumbles. I really want to switch because it seems the only thing that gets rid of sparrows! Thanks for any info.

    They won't starve themselves no matter how spoiled they are. Go ahead and switch.
    The first time they encounter pellets they may balk. I switch back and for the but I don't give them an option.
