    I am starting a chicken eggs buiseness (doesnt matter what color of egg) and i was wondering if these breeds were fair at eg laying, like at least 1 in 2 days? heres the breeds:
    turken
    black sexlink 2
    cornish rock 2
    polish 2
    ameraucana 2
    buff orpington 2
    brahmas 1
    sussex 1



    how many eggs would i get a day? and are these friendly?

    turken (Naked Neck): Mine are awesome layers. I have 8 hens
    4 to 6 a day.
    black sexlink: Great layers out of 14 getting 10 to 12 a
    day.
    ameraucana If you're talking what the hatcheries (Easter Eggers) they are good
    layers. Out of 8 hens I'm getting 4 to 6 eggs a day.
    Polish: Fair to good. I've had 2 one laid 4 to 5 days in a row, the other laid 2 to
    3 then not lay for a day or 2.
    No experience with the rest.

  4. CornishRock? These are usually purchased solely as meat birds, fed differently, and processed at 8 or 9 weeks of age.
