I have 3 RIR hens that are approximately 7 months old and 2 Barred Rocks of the same age. According to my research they are both classified as good to excellent layers, but out of all 5 hens I only end up with 6-8 eggs total per WEEK :/. Am I expecting too much for the breeds or did I end up with poor layers? They were feed store chicks so I am sure probably not the best quality, but they all appear healthy and have free choice access to feed and oyster shells and free range during the day and are trained to the laying boxes. I also have 8 white leghorns and get 6-7 eggs consistently per day from them and I understand they are considered excellent layers. I am not expecting that production from the others, but I thought it would be higher than that!
