In the Brooder
- Oct 3, 2011
I have 15 hens, 5 RR, 5 golden Comet and 5 Buff Orpington. they were all hatched in March (not the same week tho). I am getting about 4-6 eggs a day. I feel that at this point I should be getting 10 eggs a day at least. Most have plump red combs, a couple do not. Isn't that an indicater of egg laying or maturity? Should I get rid of some or should I just wait and see if some are just late maturing hens??
