    The picture below represents the eggs we've gotten in the last 7 days from 10 laying hens and one duck (the darn duck is the most consistent). What you don't see in the picture are the 6 eggs that we've already boiled for my 20 month old daughter to eat or the 15 that we sent to the incubator. So grand total is 62 (if my math is any good) eggs in 7 days from 11 laying birds. Heaven help us when the 7 new two month old hens are old enough to start laying. Great news is that we already have at least one buyer set up to take two dozen at a time twice a week.
