    I find stats like these really interesting too. I am keeping a running tally on my office calendar. My 14 girls are just getting started and I collected 5 eggs in August! The first egg arrived at 19 weeks exactly.

    We've gotten 52 eggs from 6 recently laying EE's. Not bad for a lot of rain and very hot days in central florida.

    I have no idea how many eggs my girls laid this month, or rather, I didn't keep track, but from my 7 hens (they were already laying when I was given them last winter) I probably got between 130-140 eggs. Yikes, that's a lot of eggs. I hadn't even realized (though I should have since I had six dozen eggs stacked in my fridge until a couple days ago. lol) I'm totally keeping track this month.

    Anyone else eating a lot of egg salad sandwiches? I need to get my 'eggs for sale' sign made and out there because my br girls will start laying in late october, and that's another six layers.

    I didn't even think to keep a running tally [​IMG] . I have to take a guess at how many so far. Shouldn't be hard. I only have one laying and just for the past couple weeks.

    I have 6 hens of egg laying age (just started the end of July) 3 rose sex-links, 3 white leghorns. At first we found just one brown egg everyday in a nest. then we started to find eggs in the horses hanging feed bin. then I found a nest of 15 white eggs under a bush just outside of the barn. we gathered them all up and have now only found on average 2 eggs a day, one brown and one white. Last Thursday we found 6 eggs in one day. 4 in the morning and 2 in the evening in a nest under a tree. Are the hens cheating me or just hiding them really good.

    [​IMG] Maybe I can get my husband to make me a spreadsheet for my egg laying statistics. It could have amount of feed used and give a nice graph and pie charts of how the chickens are doing.

    Of course, they probably won't ever make any money for me. Unless I can sell a few eggs here and there.

    But, four chickens probably won't lay all that many eggs. [​IMG]

    Kept track of eggs for month of August.

    6 Standard hens: 110 eggs = 9 dz + 2

    8 Bantam cochin hens: 117 eggs = 9 dz + 7

    4 ducks: 86 eggs = 7 dz + 2

    Total: 25 dz + 11 eggs [​IMG]

    Have 8 more standard that should soon start laying, and 10 more ducks...

    I got 42 duck eggs from 2 ducks.
    And 227 chicken eggs from about 16 hens that are laying.
    3 of my hens just started laying again about a week ago after hatching out some babies for me last month.
    I put all my eggs in a bowl each day and before I go to bed I count how many duck & chicken eggs I get each day and write it down on the calander. Then I put the eggs in a carton, except for the duck eggs which I havent figured out what I'm going to do with them yet. I put 12 duck eggs in the bator and should hatch on the 4th and I gave 12 eggs away to another BYC'er.
    I sold about 12 dozen this month so that helped out on the feed bill a little.

    Great idea to track egg production. Now if only I got more than one egg every other day. 41 chickens and only one old enough to lay (and it's a banty at that).
