I got 14 eggs this morning from 10 hens
Must be working overtime
maybe some laid after you collected yesterday
congrats on everyone laying though
How is that possible? Woo Hoo! I thought they took 24 hours for the egg to be produced... i guess you can have two in the processing tract?
well my chickens all lay at 10 am MST and on lays at 1PM so im still looking to get more eggs today still haha
I had a chicken that laid yesterday afternoon and early this morning. It will probably be my only egg today. My other two seem to have stopped laying for the season. She is probably making up for the slackers
BTW, how did you get them to up the production? Reading them cookbooks or KFC ads?
I believe it. I had a similar experience today.
My cochin/silkie crosses have just started laying this week (one of the three). This morning, I caught one nesting in the poop box under the roost. It is a shelf with cat litter boxes with stall deodorizer in it. She was obviously restless and wanting to lay. I left her alone but watched enough to see that there were no eggs there yet. An hour later I went out and saw TWO eggs laying in that very spot. None of the other hens were seen anywhere near her.
HMMMMM..... Maybe I ought to reproduce her!!
You need to send them here so they can give my girls a pep talk!
well i keep heat lamps on 24/7 in the coop right now and i also keep a light/heat lamp on 16 hours of the day , They dont even know winter is coming and popping out eggs left and right
How are the 'rescue' chickens looking? Clearly if you are getting that many eggs they are feeling 100% better? Are they growing their feathers back?
