    We just tallied up our egg production for the month and came out at 753 from 28 hens of laying age. Just to keep up with current orders for eggs we need to hit at least 1000 per month. That is our next big goal. This all started with 2 chickens. It's a disease I tell you....

    Do you free range?? If not, how big is your run???

    Do you get a good price for your eggs?

    Lucky you...Congrats!!

    I got 138 eggs for Jan. 19 should be laying, but apparently I have a bunch of Winter freeloaders! To be fair though, a few of them just started laying in Dec. and the beginning of Jan.
