I have been consistently getting 9-eggs per day (24-hour period) from my flock of 8-chickens. One of the eggs usually gets eaten by one of the chickens though...and I am counting that as one of the 9... It has been this way for about one-month now. The only reason I can think is that they are happy!!! I am continually outside with them... have named many of them-- and have taken fair care of them. Don't get me wrong, I am not perfect and have let their water run out, have let their food run out recently until I could make it to the store the next day (throw them a bit of scraps if I can). My main point in saying this is to emphasize that my chickens have seem'd to be performing well regardless of my care for them... I should also note that they have been on grass since they were born inside a tractor that I try to move religiously-- I think this has helped greatly with their health vs a coop with no vegetation. ANYONE else experiencing good laying rates?
