    Well some of our 18 hens started to lay just over 2 weeks ago. I have been recording the number of eggs each day on a calender. I wanted something a little better than check marks on a calender so I through this chart together. i know there have been a few pepole asking about similar charts so I figured I would try and post what I have done.

    I am only keeping track of quantity. i have too many to figure out who give me which egg on which day. I can easily figure out a total for each month this way.

    I used the same chart and just changed each month.

    Unfortunately, Picture quality is not the best because I had to scan to my pc first.

    Thats nice. I have something similar. But keep mine in a book... I just write down the month and day... then how many I collected. It sure is interesting to see the difference in numbers and days, and weeks go buy! Good Job!!! Tes

    That means... from what I have noticed, you have 6 new layers, they lay one day then take a couple of days to a week. That 10 will be almost an everyday thing before you know it. Just remember... some hens take a day off LOL... Good Luck hunny.... I have a great time with mine especially when I see new ones laying.

    oopppss.... may not be 6 new layers... but new layers none the less
