I have 24 layers that are under 1 yr old. Most of them are either BR or RIR, and a couple Araucanas. According to my calculations, these birds are fairly good layers, meaning that they would lay about 5-6x/week each. So that would average at least 10 dozen/week? (If they all layed every day, that would be 14 dozen/week) That would mean I get about an average of 17-18 eggs per day. So why am I getting only 8 dz/week? They are free range, and I know of several nests, and search and search, but can't find any more... Given that they are full-production pullets, young, and early summer, they should be laying at least this if not almost every day. The chickens that I recognize their eggs are laying most every day. Do you think they are hiding more???
