    7 of 25 Laying

    I have gathered 25 laying hens over the past couple of months. 9 were younger pullets and the rest were laying prior to me acquiring them. I am getting 5-7 eggs a day. Is this normal? They have access to oyster shell and get layer crumbles.

    We made it!

    Well, Folks! We did it! We raised all 30 birds with no losses except for one! I’d say that’s pretty good! And we got our first two eggs today! Are eggs usually pretty small when they first start laying? Or are these from my silkies? (The white egg is for comparison of a normal egg)

    Hello everyone. I have two roosters in my backyard flock and I also have 10 Rhodes island commercial layer hens. My question is, if I introduced the two roosters into my commercial layers coup, will they lay fertile eggs that I can incubate and hatch successfully.

    feeding Meatbuilder to layers

    Bought 3 bags of Purina Meatbuilder yesterday to feed to our 7 layers and 2 roos in the winter. The reasons not buying layer feed: 1) did not want to feed excess calcium to roosters 2) we liberally use treats (grains,fruits,veggies) so I figured extra protein would be a plus to offset the...
