I figured that if I got a variety of breeds, some might lay at different times or go broody at different times so I would eventually always have some eggs. All of them are Bantams, and I am ok with a smaller eggs, but figure I might want a few more than normal just to make up for the size a little. Here is my line up and what I have seen listed as their egg laying average: Araucana 2 Araucana 2 Cochin 2 silkie 1 Barred rock 3 Brahma 3 Wyandotte 3 Welsumer. 3 ------------------------ 19/2=approximately 8 standard eggs.. Since they are small I am assuming that is the equivalent of 8 standard eggs a week. I was just feeling nervous, like I should add a really good layer or two to fill in the gaps in case the planets don't align and I have 4 roosters and four broody hens... I started itching for a Leghorns and or Rhode Island Reds...Any thoughts?
